People say “He’ll always be with you…just in a different form.” Yeah…I get it. I feel him. Talk to him. But, let’s be honest….it’s NOT the same.
There is no sugarcoating death, loss and grief. It sucks!
Being your daughter was the blessing of my life and I’m so sad your granddaughter is not going to meet you.
Dad….thank you for always supporting me on my unconventional path without question. You fostered my curiosity, entrepreneurial spirit and taught me that I could achieve anything if I just did my best and worked hard.
My favorite memory is you telling us we could go to college anywhere we wanted. We would sit for hours with you in the basement pouring over college brochures and the US News + World Reports catalog of Best Universities (anyone else?!?). You helped us create poster board charts comparing all the schools and DREAM BIG about where we wanted to live and what we wanted to study and do.
You sacrificed a LOT to set us up because you wanted your girls to have EVERY opportunity to succeed. You taught me to stretch my imagination about what life could be.
THANK YOU for your visionary guidance. Instilling confidence, courage and compassion are the greatest gifts a father can offer his daughter.
THANK YOU for shaping my worldview, giving me the roots to stay grounded and the wings to fly!
Luckily, I was able to move back to Illinois for the last few months of my father’s life to care for him as he battled Multiple Myeloma. Unfortunately, he had a very aggressive form and didn’t even last a year from diagnosis to death.
It was my great honor to walk him through his cancer journey and midwife him through his conscious death.
Recently, I was asked to pour what I learned from being a Cancer caregiver into a brand-new set of guided meditations. I’m thrilled to announce that:
It’s entirely FREE! Please share far and wide with anyone you know who may be suffering from Cancer (or any other illness) or caring for someone who is.
Call someone you love today…or give them a HUGE HUG and tell them you love them! You never know how long you have.
Life is precious.
Sending you all massive love in these tender times.
P.S. I highly recommend the Muse Meditation Headband. It’s a brain sensing headband that improves your meditation practice by giving you real-time bio-feedback on your brain and body activity to help you know when you’re in the zone and train the brain into a more “Alpha State”.

* NOTE: These guided meditations are for both Cancer patients and caregivers of all kinds.
The collection includes meditations on:
If you or someone you love is on a cancer journey…you know how easy it is to get burnt out, depleted and to feel defeated. My prayer is that these meditations may bring some relief, comfort and ease your suffering amidst an incredibly difficult time.
Deepest blessings on the path.
