Sean is the senior editor of Hear Me Now. He emerges from his editing bay and sits in front of the mic to share with Jennifer, a Providence bereavement and hospice access manager, the story of the last three weeks of his mother’s life. Riddled with cancer, she was unable to eat solid food. And she decided to have clinicians remove her intravenous tube feeding, signaling her time was near. Then, on what turned out to be her last day, she sent Sean to their favorite bakery so they could share a meal together. A meal and a moment Sean would never forget. Edit credit: Sean Collins
