Interview with Anne Bland as she discusses her new book Breathe - A True Story of Letting Go of My Parents Gracefully, For I Will See Them Again. Breathe was written and published in the first few months after her mom passed during an unexpected hospitalization. It was written during that raw period, when the most important aspects of your life become clearer. The book is a fast read, but it holds a powerful story that can change your life. It will make you laugh, cry and smile. Breathe is a journey of learning to let go. Bland is a healthcare professional with over 35 years experience in the hospital setting with a focus on taking care of critically ill patients in the intensive care unit. She wants to help others better understand end of life decisions in the hospital. This understanding comes through open communication prior to an illness between family members and their healthcare providers. Breathe views this period as a part of life that is not a time to deny or dread, but one that can be used to reflect on how you live your life. The nurturing process is so evident in Breathe. Breathe will enhance your journey in life, provide you with clarity for end of life decisions related to advance care planning, and allow you the opportunity to help others. Breathe opens the door for a meaningful dialogue between patients, their families, and healthcare providers. The book is about living, loving, and letting go gracefully when the time comes. The royalty from the sale of the book goes directly for relief and development to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.
