Conversations with Scars
September 23, 2020
Hosted by Nina Impala
The first time Margaret was really exposed to death and the concept of what it means to die, she was 10 years old. A girl from the summer camp that she had been attending for a few years had died and they had a memorial at camp that summer. She died from complications related to Spina Bifida, a birth defect they both shared. A device, called a shunt, that drains excess fluid from her head, had stopped working and they couldn’t fix it. When she heard what happened, Margaret became terrified at the thought that at any moment that could happen to her, too. She spent countless hours and days living in fear that she would die. Adding to her preoccupation with thoughts of her own mortality, both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer 6 months apart that year. Margaret soon learned that death would be a constant theme in her life. This is just the tip of the iceberg for Margaret.
Inspiring End-of-Life Conversations
Wednesday at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Inspiring End of Life Conversations show is about talking openly about dying and death. Guests on my program include cancer survivors, family members who care to share their stories of aging parents, losing a child, survivors of suicide, accidental death as well as pet psychics who share with us the messages from our furry friends.
We cover ALL aspects of hospice and what people need to know about it before admitting a loved one into hospice care. We have those who have survived near death experiences who share their message of hope and the fact that Heaven is for real. Many shows feature Father Nathan Castle, who is a Catholic Priest, and receives messages from people in dreams who are stuck in the in-between place. If someone dies, and there is something to share, we will be talking about it! Tune in live to Inspiring End of Life Conversations every Wednesday at 3 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
