Dr. Alistair McAlpine, a palliative pediatrician from Cape Town, South Africa asked his dying patients, all young children (ages 4-9), "what they had enjoyed about life and the people, places and things that suffused their lives with meaning."

HuffPost's Carol Kuruvilla reports the responses which McAlpine posted in a Twitter thread. They are deeply moving, touching and thoughtful.

If you are interested in hospice and palliative care, the website of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine has a rich array of resources and information. These are found in the links at the top of the page.
