Chapter 1 - Listening and the Little Things
We meet a nurse educator and a volunteer with hospice and palliative care Cape Breton. We find out what it takes to do the job... and what it gives back.
Chapter 2 - Music to Soothe the Soul
Music doesn't cure.... but music therapy is part of the healing process in hospice palliative care.
We'll learn more about the program in Cape Breton and meet a lovely lady who has found her voice.. and in doing so has given her family a gift from the heart.

We meet some dedicated volunteers and organizers on this the 25th anniversary year of hospice palliative care in Cape Breton.

John McDermott - LOOKING BACK... 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR!
Time(s): 7:30 PM | Price(s): $47.50 (incl. service charges)
John McDermott can recall the precise moment when he realized that giving up his day job and making singing his full-time career had been the right decision. That moment came at 8 pm on October 5th, 1993 at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax as he walked on stage to a full house and a thunderous East Coast welcome. It was his first concert with his own band, and he was received with such wild encore-inducing enthusiasm the concert turned into a 4 hour marathon. John was hooked!
