It was March 2015 when dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. My world changed during that month. Dealing not only with his dementia, cancer was another blow to the family. I had many questions and not enough answers. Sure, the practicality of taking him for tests, scans, radiation treatment, x-rays and further tests were difficult however the physical and emotional toll was the most challenging I faced being the primary carer for dad’s journey.
The week of his diagnosis I reached out as I needed support to get me through this cancer maze. I found Life Force and attended the carer’s group for the first few weeks. Each week I became open to sharing my thoughts and feelings in a caring and encouraging environment. So, I stayed as long as I needed. I shared my laughter and my struggles with each week’s events. The meditation grounded my soul when it was needed, the talks helped me deal with the challenges a carer faces. Through Life Force, I learned to elevate the maze of cancer and get back to the fundamental importance of spiritual growth and acceptance of a soul’s journey. “They were the blanket of warmth and comfort when you felt you were left out in the cold”
Forever grateful to the people of Life Force...
