Finding comfort in the midst of a loved one's terminal illness can be difficult. It's a time of grief, stress, and an overall feeling of helplessness. Sometimes, all we want is a sympathetic ear, someone who knows what we're going through. Lorie Friedman is that someone. After her father's terminal lung cancer diagnosis, Friedman experienced a myriad of emotions, ranging from anger and fear to denial and disbelief. She felt caught in the time warp of waiting for her father to die-and there was little she could do about it. Throughout the last two weeks of her father's life, Friedman developed a closeness to the hospice employees, learned about the angel network, and became all too familiar with his medications. She longed for solace with others who had endured a loved one's terminal illness-but resources that dealt specifically with the time frame between diagnosis and death weren't available. "Crossing the Finish Line" fills that gap. Candid and gentle, Friedman shares her intimate thoughts and emotions about this delicate time in her life, offering much-needed support and comfort to anyone on the same journey.
