Hospice chaplain Suzanne Bea Slover Leahy has cared for hundreds of people on the edge of death. Life on the Edge is a moving collection of heartwarming stories packed with deep insights from Suzanne’s reflections on the front lines.

Death isn’t a subject people like to discuss, but the reality is, everyone is going to die. Suzanne not only normalizes dying, she humanizes it by reflecting on what it’s like to accompany individuals at the end of their lives.

Suzanne shares about the early days of her career, her experiences working at a cancer treatment center, as well as the present challenges of caring for patients during the COVID pandemic. With humor and grace, Suzanne honors the lives of her patients who have died, by passing on the wisdom they’ve taught her in their final moments.

Whether you’re a caregiver, family member, or individual, Life on the Edge will inspire you to make every moment count and to begin to face the reality of death without fear.
