Summary: We Carry Each Other is the definitive resource on what to say and do when you or a loved one suffer illness or loss. What do you say to a friend with invasive cancer whose body is rejecting her second transplanted kidney? How do you answer when she says, "I'm really scared this time"? How do you comfort your next-door neighbor when she calls to say that her husband died in his sleep? And, what do you do if you are a fiercely independent, single mom who is suddenly brought to her knees when she finds her teenage son is dying? The stories in We Carry Each Other are born organically through the CarePages community--one of the world's largest social networking sites where lifestyle and health needs meet community and emotional support. These stories of everyday heroes are sure to inspire a social movement in compassionate caring toward those struggling with illness, loss, and life's difficulties, much like Random Acts of Kindness launched worldwide attention to simple acts of goodness. We Carry Each Other is a guide to finding the courage inside ourselves to open our hearts and spirits, and reach out with caring and compassion when a spouse, child, parent, friend, neighbor, or colleague needs us most. * Seventy-eight million Baby Boomers are caring for aging parents, children, and grandchildren. * We Carry Each Other is a guide to finding the courage inside ourselves to open our hears and spirits, and reach out with caring and compassion.
