I'm writing today to shine the spotlight on a Chapel Hill-based organization called Project Compassion. I got a little taste of what they're up to recently when one of their trainers, Marilyn, helped a group of us start up a Support Team for a friend who has cancer.
Marilyn was a fantastic resource for our team. She generously took us through the maze of issues we would likely encounter, laying things out carefully and respectfully. And thank goodness. It's tricky enough when everyone is dealing with the anxiety of this kind of illness.
And if you're in need of some pros who can help you start up a Support Team or Caring Circle for someone in need, I bet they'll be able to help you.
