Admitting that we have thoughts about death when we are diagnosed with cancer, is both a gift for ourselves and a gift from our family.
Once cancer strikes we are at risk.
For many our cancers can be cured. For others, cancer hangs out in our bodies until it becomes center stage again. For some cancer becomes a losing battle.
When the battle is finally lost, I have seen angry women become peaceful. Not having to constantly strive, they can rest. They can start thinking about their end. They might start to plan. They are relieved they no longer have to fight. They were exhausted. Now they can relax.
As our cancer progresses, as we get another cancer, death becomes a topic for discussion. We want to know more. The event below is a well received discussion in Albuquerque. Join us.
