Darien, Darius, and Floyd

Amazing stories are bubbling up from readers of Living Consciously, Dying Gracefully. On Christmas Eve Nancy & I had the honor of being interviewed on All About You, the blog radio show of Darien Marshall and Darius Jones from Philadelphia. As the program neared the end (you can listen to it here), our hosts told us about their friend Floyd who had suffered a stroke. They encouraged Floyd to read the book, and he was so inspired by Diane’s journey that he has started a support group for people with strokes, much as Diane had started a cancer support group in her hometown.

When we hear stories like this, we feel grateful that Diane’s book can inspire people to live more fully and (in her words) “more heartfully.” Diane would be thrilled to see the good works and deeds springing from her decision to be open about her whole cancer journey.


P.S. from Nancy:
Darien and Darius, who have never believed in guardian angels, have decided that Diane is now their guardian angel. Perhaps that’s because for the first time in their lives, they cried while reading a book.
