Difficult Conversations Workbook
Chapter 9: “What I Hope For…”
Rich and Cathy share the hope that when the treatments they’ve been trying are no longer working, there will be new drugs to try. “But I’m really thankful for all the blessings we’ve had in our family,” says Rich.
“I hope that whatever happens, people understand why I made whatever decisions I made,” says Laura. “And I hope somehow there’s a way to make it easier.” Steve hopes he’ll be able to face the end of his life still possessing “a degree of who I am now.”
Hope is personal; it can mean different things to different people.
