Fighting for Life

Fighting indicates there is a struggle, a fierce competition for existence or a battle that must be won. Clearly anyone who has been given a terminal illness diagnosis gets catapulted into this fight.

How do we, as family or caregivers, come along side of a person going in to this type of survival mode? What can we do?

#1 Be yourself

#2 Don’t wait, act now

#3 Redefine what “winning” or “loosing” may really mean

#4 Let the person tell their story…which may include emotions or perspectives you never have heard from them ever before!

Someone fighting for their life will be on edge, very focused on the task at hand and may become exhausted quickly. As a family or caregiver, your kindness and involvement in simple ways will make a difference.

YOU WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
