This InKind trusted wellness advisor shares her answers to InKind Space’s 5 Questions.

WHO DID YOU SUPPORT?

My mother.

HOW DID YOU SUPPORT THEM?

My mom had breast cancer when I was 13 years old so as much as I wanted to support her I think I mainly felt fear. I remember my mother falling down and collapsing out of sheer exhaustion in the garden one day and not being able to get up for a while. The two of us were alone together upstate and I needed to take care of her for a few days on my own.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR A CAREGIVER/SUPPORTER/ADVOCATE/FRIEND?

Looking back I dont think I did enough for my mom and was in denial about her cancer. I would advocate for people to talk about it together and just show up for one another with as much love as possible.

SHARE A MOMENT OF LEVITY DURING THIS JOURNEY.

I wish I could think of one! It was a long time ago... During her treatment I listened to, and found escape in music.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?

I am so lucky and grateful for my health and my families health which I know can never, ever be taken for granted.
