Here I chat with a couple who both lost their person to ALS & are now supporting each other to move forward in life.

In this episode I chat with Juliet Taylor & Tim Abeska who each lost their spouse to ALS. They met in a virtual support group for widow & widowers.   Realizing they lived in the same area and had common interests, they met for coffee and their relationship grew from there.  Today they encourage each other to love & honor their late spouse, enjoy life and be active ALS advocates to help end ALS.  Here, Juliet & Tim share about their late spouses, Jeff Sarnacki & Mary Ann Abeeska.  We talk about how they are supporting each other’s grief journey and what advice they have for others who are experiencing loss.  It's incredible that both Juliet & Tim have jumped back in to the ALS community as key advocates.  Together, they are the co-chairs of the I AM ALS Community Outreach Team, which helps bring others into our fight for a cure.  Juliet writes a beautiful online column for ALS News Today. Listen in to this hopeful chat and share with a friend. Thanks for listening.

Hugs, Lorri

About Lorri Carey

On Friday the 13th, February 2004 at the age of 37, I was told I have ALS. I’m dying from ALS, yet I’m so encouraged to live life to the fullest. I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive. I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!
