I was struggling trying to cope with my best friend's diagnoses that basically meant
death. He heard about the Center, and began to attend the group that was for people who had a life-threatening diagnosis.. He told me about the caregivers/friends group that was offered and I started attending weekly. The group enabled me to be a better support person/friend. The small staff were supportive and loving, and the volunteers were committed to providing understanding and care. I was with people who could and did talk about illness, suffering and death in a way that was normal, loving and supportive. It is also important to note that there was no charge for their services - nothing at all. Donations were appreciated but never ever requested. What began as a small local agency has expanded to be world-wide.
I ended up being a volunteer, and eventually was put on staff, where I remained until I retired. The currency was and is still love and respect that is given and received.
