My Tedx Talk

When Death Threatens Someone You Love:
Life REALLY Matters

Is it true that whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger? What happens when someone we love is given a death-defying challenge? Or we ourselves are faced with such a challenge, not of our own choosing? How can we live fully in the midst of the challenges of diagnoses, illness, treatments, and death? What does it take to arrive at a place of resilience and recovery when the journey is complete?

Watch my talk to see what I learned from accompanying my son who lived with and died from AIDS, and my best friend and my daughter who lived with and died from breast cancer.
