Here I talk to a young mother who is facing a terminal illness and raising two young children.

In this episode of  "I'm Dying To Tell You," I meet up with the resilient Sara Bennett, from Columbus, Ohio. At just 36 years old, Sara was confronted with a devastating diagnosis: ALS. In a candid and deeply moving conversation, Sara opens up about her extraordinary journey, bravely navigating the intricate balance of life as a mother to two young sons, aged 5 and 7, while grappling with the harsh reality of a terminal illness. With unwavering courage, Sara shares her poignant insights, offering listeners a profound glimpse into the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unimaginable challenges. Sara shares how she told her young boys about her diagnosis and how she is navigating parenthood in this new season.  Sara also shares how she is working with a death doula to assist her with end-of-life.  This episode is a reminder of the indomitable strength found within us all. Thank you for listening in.

Hugs, Lorri
