'Tori', our guest this week. has lost a daughter, only after a few weeks of life. Survived cancer. With her son, humor, community and love of life helping her tread and fight her way back to shore.
Tori talks openly about her mental health. The feelings of shame and malfunction. The door into the long hall of grief that leads to a window looking out at sunflowers under a glorious, warm sunshine.
In times of great agony, and grief, drowning is not an option. Humor can buoy us, but for only so long. The human condition tries dragging us into the depths. Tori has played many characters in this tragic comedy of life. She has swum with the sharks.
Tori wishes to give a huge shout out to the Pediatric Palliative Care Team at the Albany Medical Center. Dr. Joanne Porter and her team were integral members of Tori's care team.
