Survivor of cancer, living with chronic illness

After losing our son to sudden cardiac death at age 32, our grief was overwhelming. That was 15 years ago. When we read DISCOVERING HOPE, we realized it could also help us deal with our grief. This is the first study that helped answer our many questions. We highly recommend it to anyone dealing with this chronic issue too.
