The following comes to us from Susan Levine, Executive Director of Hospice of the Valley:

New TV commercials begin airing this month for Hospice of the Valley! They feature testimonials from diverse individuals, none of whom are actors. All have a personal connection with Hospice of the Valley. They include a biker, a Hispanic family and one of our physicians who has experienced hospice care as a son and as a professional. Broadcast celebrity Hugh Downs, who served many years as our public spokesman, will continue to have a presence in the rotation of commercials. Please let us know what you think!

Other exciting goings-on at HOV include:
