Featured Caregiving Story

Deborah and Kent Engel Cared for by Lauren Engel of laguna beach, CA

My mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer when I was only 22-years-old. This happened only one year after my father, her husband of thirty years, had just passed away. I was all she had, and she was my best friend. We were together every hour of every day. Couldn't separate us :). I took care of her every need for years until this September when she succumbed to her illness.
