Death doula, and author, Rebecca Munn is an optimist. She was raised by optimists. Yet she encourages conversations about death. And talks to people about cancer. Why? Because it’s who she is.
Her first book, The Gift of Goodbye: A Story of Agape Love , she shares the journey she took with her mom after her second cancer diagnosis. Rebecca talks about the challenges that so many caregivers face: juggling parenthood, career, and geographic barriers to provide care to her Mom, and Dad, at different times. In her newest book, All of Us Warriors: Cancer Stories of Survival and Loss , she talks with others about their cancer experiences. And what they want others to know.
