Dying patient thanks palliative doctor for making ‘sad ending better’

Kenneth Owen has terminal cancer and thanks his doctor, Darren Cargill for making the end of his life easier.

“What Dr. Cargill has done for me, and for my wife, is make that fear go away.”

Cargill said the gratitude shown to him by patients and family really motivates him in this specialty he loves. “When someone has a lot of symptoms and pain, and I can do something to help that, and usually fairly quickly, that’s something that’s very gratifying for me as a practitioner,” he said.
