In 2008 I received an email from James Whitlow Delano asking me if I would like to participate in a philanthropic venture. After the untimely death of his only sister, Jeanne, he realized how grateful he was for the palliative hospice care she received in her last days, and he wanted to give something back. My father had also received hospice care in the time leading up to his death, just a few years prior to James’ proposal, and I jumped at the opportunity to contribute to an effort to raise money for the kind of aid and comfort that hospice workers provide for the dying and their loved ones. The humble staff of the center where my father was cared for worked with inherent dedication and diligence to eliminate his physical pain, to help us to understand the psychological states of dying, and to say goodbye in the best of all possible conditions. The compassion, knowledge and mercy they provided us were an invaluable gift.

James succeeded in enlisting over a hundred photographers, asking each of us the same thing: to provide one photograph that expressed the notion of “mercy.” It is with great pleasure that I announce the completion of his project and solicit your support for this endeavor. Proceeds and royalties will go entirely to National Hospice Foundation in the US and Japan Hospice Palliative Care Foundation.
