Finding Calm Seas in Turbulent Times
Today on Finding Calm Seas in Turbulent Times, George, a father, cancer caregiver and my husband will be sharing his experience being a caregiver. Having a family member get a diagnosis of cancer or other health challenges is tough. Becoming a caregiver to that person at that moment is also a major life change. More than 50 million Americans serve as caregivers, 86% of those care for a relative. As a caregiver, you are now trying to figure out your new life after being told someone you love will be fighting for their life.  How will you work though this and find the balance moving forward? I hope this episode gives you some of those answers.

New Day
As of this day - this NEW DAY - October 8, 2020 I am CANCER FREE.   My mom referenced this turning point as my New Day. A New Day to start fresh. I think of all that has happened this year and finally something wonderful! In this episode I talk about my journey and how I got to this point. What lead me to start this podcast? Listen and see! So, as you know I'm a sailor my dream is to sail and discover new places, live the adventure and find peace. I am a work in progress and I'm working toward my goal. Even if your dream has nothing to do with sailing, hopefully you will get something out of this podcast. My guests will be sharing their stories of what they've been through. How they stay happy. How they adjust when things aren't going the way they thought they should. The biggest point is how do you live your dreams when you get handed this terrible disease or other life event that takes you down.  I have many amazing people ready to share their stories of how they made it through and continue to find happiness. It will be informative, reassuring and give you hope.
