Lori A. Hedderman, M.Ed., N.C.C., L.P.C., is a certified school counselor who works with children and their families in the public school system. Her work brings her into contact with many students who are losing a parent or loved one due to illness. She conducts bereavement groups and counsels individuals who have experienced losses. She also facilitates a support group for children whose parents have cancer or other serious illnesses. She is trained in both crisis intervention and disaster mental health and responds to traumatic events in her role as a crisis team member for her school. As a former American Red Cross Disaster Mental Health Team Member, she was deployed to Mississippi during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, where she worked to console and to assist hundreds of victims who were grieving the loss of loved ones.

While this may be a difficult book to purchase and for the patient to begin making notes in, it seems to me that using this guide to create this unique personal record will be deeply meaningful for the person, validate their life, and give them a sense of "looking after" those they most care about.
Lori's skills and background are obvious in the way she handles this tough, tough subject. I really recommend this book and I thank her for her tenacity in creating it.
