The third in the end-of-life-webinar series, the topic of this session is navigating the challenge of serious illness and dying with self or a loved one. After the panel speaks, there will be time for Q&A from listeners. We are very pleased that Josephine Hicks will be leading our conversation, joined by the Sherry Storr, hospital chaplain, and the Rev'd Miriam Saxon, members of the series' task force.
Josephine Hicks is the Vice President for Episcopal Church Programs for Episcopal Relief & Development, following a career as a litigation attorney in Charlotte. She has served in many capacities in The Episcopal Church and in the Diocese. She experienced end-of-life issues as the primary caregiver for her partner during almost four years with pancreatic cancer. Her book, "If There’s Anything I Can Do: What You Can Do When Serious Illness Strikes," was born of that experience and offers practical advice on how to help and what to say during the universal experience of navigating disease.
We look forward to our conversation and your participation in this session of our series. This event will also be simulcast via Facebook Live on the diocesan Facebook page.
