Terminal Illness Discussion for Families & Caregivers
Did someone you know or love recently receive a life threatening diagnosis? Do you feel blind sided, shocked, mad, sad, depressed, hopeless or helpless as a result? Like there is nothing you can do, after all you are not a doctor. Well you are not alone! Let Alison Bramhall empower you to take action and remind you that you do have a very important role to play. Yet it can be very hard to see when you are engulfed in shock, despair and overwhelm. Alison encourages you to let the doctor(s) take care of the body, and helps guide you to focus on the mind and spirit. This very important empowering focus on mind and spirit will keep you out of overwhelm, inertia and despair. Alison will share with you her journey after learning that her father was given 25 days to live. She will share the lessons she learned thru her 105 day journey and how important it is to feel your feelings and follow your gut, so in the end you are at peace and have no regrets. Join her for an informal gathering to share and discuss how important it is for you to feel the pain, accept it and your feelings, and let it empower you to make the best of the time you do have together. She will share a book she wrote as part of her healing process, which Maine Medical Center has used in teaching graduating doctors end of life care. If you or anyone you know, is dealing with such a diagnosis, please join her.
