Learning To Live Again After Loss
Faith is a mother who has had to bear the unbearable after her teenage daughter died from cancer. She wrote a memoir called Hope Is a Bright Star, about a Mother’s Love, Loss, and Learning to Live Again. Learn more about Faith at https://www.faithwilcoxnarratives.com/aboutI hope our conversation can provide you presence for today and hope for tomorrow. Here’s a little bit more about Faith.She believes that self-expression through writing leads to healing. Her writing is reflective of a growing body of medical research about “narrative identity,” which illuminates that how we make sense of what happens to us and the meaning we give to experiences beyond our control directly impact our physical and psychological outcomes. Faith learned these truths firsthand when her thirteen-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, was diagnosed with rare bone cancer that took her life. Faith’s journey from grief and despair to moments of comfort and peace taught her life-affirming lessons, which she shares today through her writing. Faith is the author of Hope Is A Bright Star: A Mother’s Memoir of Love, Loss, and Learning to Live Again that will be published in June 2021. Faith is also the author of Facing Into The Wind: A Mother’s Healing After the Death of Her Child, a book of poetry. A longtime resident of Massachusetts, Faith leads a journal writing program at Mass General Hospital for Children for patients and their families designed to give participants the opportunity to express themselves, alleviate stress, celebrate victories, and honor their grief. As co-chair of Mass General Hospital for Children’s Family Advisory Council, she works with parents and medical staff to improve the lives of patients and their families.Continue to be inspired on Instagram @mompreneurdanielle or follow us on Facebook.
