Henderson-Hughes Health Partners H3P started as a result of the founder, Venus Henderson-Hughes’, mother being rejected admittance into a hospice treatment facility. Her mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer at age 49. Her health, quickly declining, she needed to be admitted into hospice care.
Given the medical benefits she had, the process would not lead her to hospice care, but in home care with a hospice nurse. Have you ever witnessed your loved one in extreme pain and felt helpless? That was how Venus felt. After days and weeks and phone calls, advocating for her sick mother; fumbling her way through an unfamiliar process, she got the results she needed for her mother to live her final days as peacefully as possible.
This was one of the pivotal experiences that lead Venus to begin advocating on behalf of other families with great health concerns and little knowledge. This extends beyond helping the ill, but also preserving the healthy.
Henderson-Hughes Health Partners (H3P) was incorporated in November 2012 as Henderson-Hughes Health Partners H3P, LLC by Venus Henderson-Hughes. June 5, 2014 Henderson-Hughes Health Partners (H3P) became a 501C3 nonprofit organization. H3P’s passion is to educate the community on public health matters and the healthcare industry enabling the community to make informed health decisions.
