The Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation

The Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Foundation is dedicated to furthering the legacy and work of pioneering legend, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. This Swiss born doctor is considered one of the founders of the modern day hospice movement. She is the author of two dozen books that have sold in excess of 10 million copies. TIME Magazine named her, “One of the 100 most important thinkers of the 20th century.” She was “Woman of the Year” in 1977, and “Woman of the Decade” for sciences in the 70’s. Her personal grit and determination forever changed how the world treats its dying. Her tireless efforts to assure that those who are dying be treated with compassion and dignity have now become the standard in end of life care in many Western countries. Dr. Ross taught the world that dying was actually about living and that our work here was to learn how to love unconditionally.
