When Serious Illness Strikes


We all have friends, family, work colleagues and neighbors who have been diagnosed with cancer or are suddenly facing a significant crisis. We all want to help, but we don’t always know how. While Josephine Hicks’ partner Ann was fighting pancreatic cancer they began taking casual notes on all the things that people said and did that were both helpful … and not so helpful. Neither knew that their notes would turn into a bestselling book but that’s exactly what happened. We hear more about their story and learn more about the helpful things to say and do.

Josephine Hicks
– Lawyer, partner at Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein; author of If There’s ANYTHING I Can Do (the book is available on the website, Amazon, Park Road Books and at Main Street Books in Davidson.)
John W Munce – friend of Josephine & Ann’s, cancer survivor
Louise Goldstein, RN - Clinical Care Coordinator with Duke HomeCare & Hospice
