As a cancer survivor, my journey with death has been a dance and partnership learning that grief is ongoing and ever changing, just like our lives.  I come from a place of great appreciation and compassion, as I've lost all my immediate family and most recently my grandson.   I've served in the home health & hospice industry for over a decade and soon came to realize the biggest gap of help for families lies in the many tasks that occur after their loved one passes on.   No one prepares us for the demands of calls and other responsibilities after we lose someone we love.    

"I've always believed in educating and empowering people.  My journey in life is to help those who are dealing with the loss of a loved one and ease their burden in some way."  Barbara Ball
