About Beth Maher:
After working 12 years as a homecare physician for Hospice Buffalo I was diagnosed with a potentially life-limiting disease. This potential brush with death prompted me to make significant changes in my life, including moving fulltime to the land I love: The Adirondacks. I am following the advice that I gave countless times to my patients: If you are feeling well enough, go for "it" (what ever that "it" is).
What brings you to Death Cafe?
I have been fortunate to participate in the intimate process of dying with many individuals and their families. More often than not, dying can be a time great personal growth but fear can blunt that growth. My hope is that openingly talking about DEATH can alleviate fear and increase the potential for it to be a time of personal growth.
What would you like your legacy to be?
That I spread some LOVE.
Thoughts for sharing:
Live each day like it could be your last.
