What is “Journeys of Heartache and Grace” about?

“Journeys of Heartache and Grace: Conversations and Life Lessons from Young People with Serious Illnesses” is a book on communicating with loved ones during tough times when people become seriously ill.  I based the book on poignant, practical and heartfelt dissertation interviews with young people ages six to 20 facing life-threatening or serious chronic illnesses.  Without exception, the life lessons apply to people of all ages, through good times and bad.
