Supporting our Supporters

They say that what goes around comes around…that’s the law of Karma.  Actually, I’ve been told and seen that when we give we get much more in return so giving is good.  This is important to keep in mind because for those dealing with a life-altering illness you need to take a thorough inventory of those you support and who supports you.

 When I talk about support I hope you look at the businesses and service professionals in your community, in your life and the causes that are important to them.  How do they give back to the community.  Do they put their money where their mouths are and do they show up to help.  I want you to take stock of this list because if they are supporting organizations that help research for treatments or cures for disease you want to take note.  If they support service organizations that work to increase your quality of life, please take note.

Take note of those who support you in your battle with the life-altering illness.  If at all possible I encourage you to support these businesses and service professionals so they can continue giving to the causes that are important to you.  These are the businesses that we want to have around for a long time because they are partners in the battles faced every day by those of you with a life-altering illness.

Think of the impact you can have by supporting those who give back to the community and get your friends and family to support you in this mission.  The rewards will be enormous because there will be more support for you as you make your way through the physical, emotional, financial and spiritual maze caused by the life-altering illness.  Let me know how you see this working in your life.


I've lived my life in service to others. I'm focused on mental health and how it impacts our relationships, culture, and society. Through creative expression and narrative I believe we can impact change.
