Lessons Along the Way (May, 2019)

In this three-part series, Denise shares some of the most important things she learned through her experience with cancer during the 18 months following her diagnosis. In these videos she offers what she believes could be helpful or meaningful insights to others who are facing difficult life circumstances or are caring for others in challenging situations. In Denise’s words; “I am even hopeful that there are messages [in these videos] that are universal to all of us as human beings, doing our best to rise to the daily challenges of everyday life with a modicum of gratitude, graciousness, and humility. One of my favorite lessons (in Part Three) is the lesson of urgency and the privilege of being ourselves, knowing we are the only ones qualified to bring our unique light and wisdom to the world.”
