Tim McGraw is living out the lyrics to his massive hit song “Humble and Kind.”
He recently accepted a position on the board of directors for Narus Health, a Nashville-based palliative care company.
“When I learned of Narus Health’s patient-focused approach, helping people with serious illness live their lives, it struck a chord. I remember all the decisions my dad had to make along the way, and the support system he needed throughout his journey,” McGraw said.
McGraw’s father Tug McGraw died of brain cancer in 2004, when he was just 59, after a year-long battle. He lived out his last days at his son’s Nashville home. Companies like Narus are there to improve the quality of life during times like that, for anyone facing a terminal illness. “We believe time is a gift. Every moment matters,” their Twitter bio says.
According to the Nashville Business Journal, McGraw joined Narus because he believes that when you are facing a serious illness, you need a dedicated team right there with you.
“People who will listen, provide support and guidance for you and your family, and give you a voice in your health care decisions. That’s the kind of care everyone deserves,” McGraw said.
