Keeping those feet moving: Lessons from a widowed parent
Wednesday, June 28, 2023, 8:30-9:15 pm EST
Coleman says. "Many of us don't know or understand what our life's purpose is or how to achieve it. I didn't know my life's purpose for a long time. Sometimes it takes an unthinkable event to occur in order for the purpose to reveal itself. For me, it began with a cancer diagnosis. Not mine, it was my wife's diagnosis—brain cancer, with a prognosis of less than two years to live. From that moment on, my entire perception of life changed. The world looked different. I cried for a few moments and then collected my thoughts. I decided that no matter what was coming, I would rise up and fight alongside my wife. It was during my wife's fight, and then ultimately when I lost her, that I discovered my life's mission: to inspire those directly or indirectly affected by cancer and other personal challenges to keep moving forward. However, to be completely honest, it took me some time to figure things out. In fact, it was a full five years after my wife's initial diagnosis before I finally broke my silence through blogging—I haven't looked back since."
