Christin saw me in the hospital for many days after I was diagnosed with CLL. At 50 I was certainly not ready for this long hospitalization. I was terrified. I was angry. I was afraid. The one thing that saved me from depression was seeing this angels face. When she would come in and work with me, everything went away and I was transported to some other place. I don't know how she does what she does but I can never thank her enough. She is an angel.
I was diagnosed with leukemia after taking care of my wife who had breast cancer. Both os us had a poor prognosis given to us. We have two biological and one "adopted" teens who cant cope with this. Ive been in the hospital for 3 weeks and my wife with breast cancer is home alone. Christin had been working with me nad even had a hair cutting ceremony because my hair was falling out. She offered to have a Tea circle with my entire family. We all shared so much. The next day, the doctors gave us both good news that the cancer was out of our bodies and the chemo was working!
Christin came to my sisters side during time of need as a family. We were not doing well handling the reality of the situation. Christin came in an made sense of everything and calmed our anxietes. She helped me to discuss the dying process, and make me feel okay about the subject matter. She also helped our family immensley by taking care of all the things we had forgotten to think about, all the little things. We couldnt have done it without her. She made something so scar and horrible, into a beautiful celebration and reminder of how to live!
