Nineteen years ago when the idea of having a hospice ball to market our local hospice program to the Fort Dodge community was suggested, most people only understood that the word "hospice" had something to do with "death." Today, as we look forward to the 19th Annual Hospice Ball, the word "hospice" has taken on a whole new meaning. Most people in the Fort Dodge and surrounding communities have either had a loved one enrolled in a hospice program or have had a friend, neighbor or colleague who has experienced a death while enrolled in a hospice program. In 2009, 41.6 percent of all deaths in the United States were under the care of a hospice program.
