Here I talk to Amy, Jim and Matt who are living with ALS about having the toughest conversations of their lives.

When you’re living with a terminal illness that doesn’t have a cure and typically gives you just a few years to live, like ALS, the most difficult conversations come up quick. In this episode, I bring together 3 others who are living with ALS to talk about their experiences with these tough conversations. Here, I’m talking to Amy Stiens, Jim Plews-Ogan and Matt Klingenberg. I am grateful for their willingness to chat about how they were told they had a terminal illness with no cure, how they told their children and friends and even the toughest conversations yet. Amy, Jim & Matt share their advice on how to go about having "tough talks" like these as well. Thanks for listening in and sharing with a friend.

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!
