The Latest Newsletter
and a Health Update

       We've posted the Spring-Summer 2012 newsletter, "Among Friends." It includes this health update:

       In 2010 FSJC president Monica Dodds was diagnosed with uterine cancer (carcinosarcoma) and underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
       In late February of this year the family learned that the cancer has metastasized to her lungs. At that time her oncologist estimated she has, at most, a year to live. She is now in a hospice program.
       Monica and Bill and all the family thank you so much for your concern and your prayers. You remain in theirs.

       We do thank you, very much. And you are in our prayers!

        This week we're so pleased to welcome Dietgard H., and Patricia G. of Illinois; Judith G. and Gloria O. of Louisiana; and Marian M. of Wisconsin as the newest members of the Friends of St. John the Caregiver. Please keep them and their intentions in your prayers. They have promised to pray for you and yours.
       And we
cordially invite you  to join the Friends of St. John the Caregiver! (FSJC's programs include YourAgingParent.com and CatholicCaregivers.com.) You can find out more about becoming a member here.
       No meetings, no dues. All we ask is that you pray for caregivers and those receiving care. Our members include caregivers, care-receivers, and those who support both (including quite a few former caregivers).

Dear Friends,

       We have several topics that can help you look at caregiving from your care-receiver's point of view, including:

'I Don't Want to Be a Burden'

Parent's Grief

Independence

Losses

       There's also a three-part video on this. Here's the first:
