The story of the Foundation begins in a most humbling way. When local Hammond businessman Richard Murphy was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1982, he wanted to live his remaining days in the familiar surroundings and comfort of his home. Since the area did not have a bona fide hospice provider, Richard’s family, friends and medical team learned about hospice care and established the first hospice network in Hammond, Louisiana. Following Richard Murphy’s death, and the exposure it created for hospice care, the Richard Murphy Hospice Foundation was established to create a funding mechanism for families of the terminally ill who wanted hospice care, but did not have the insurance or funds for hospice care.
