She walked the talk to the very end

"You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but live until you die," said Dame Cicely Mary Saunders, widely acclaimed as the founder of the modern day hospice movement.

Dame Cicely died of cancer at the age of 87 (in 2005), at St. Christopher's Hospice, the hospice she founded.
