ed with leukemia, I was devastated. But I realized I could play the victim or I could live as fully as possible in the present. Living meant telling my story and getting on with living," said Sally Ann Harvey of Bloomington, Indiana, a story contributor. "Over time, I have realized that my diagnosis was a gift because it has made me do things I never would have done otherwise. I believe life -- the whole circle of life, which includes death -- is about connections. And sharing our personal stories is a way of connecting with each other."
The series is divided into six booklets, by theme, including:
- Poetry, Inspiration, and Reflection
- Peace, Acceptance, and Letting Go
- Final Days
The series of six booklets is presented in a hardbound case, and is available for $35.00 through The CHEST Foundation at 1-800-343-2227. Proceeds from sales go to support The CHEST Foundation's end-of-life care programs for physicians and their patients. For more information, visit www.chestfoundation.org.
This resource was developed by The CHEST Foundation in partnership with Ambassadors Group members, a volunteer support arm that includes relatives and associates of ACCP members. The group plays an important role in communicating with ACCP members and their patients in the communities where they work and live. Story submissions were reviewed and selected by project co-chairs Norine Lever, MA, and Rosemary Bone Mason, RN, along with the ACCP Publications Committee.
