How does a purple journey help a young girl deal with her dads cancer diagnosis?
A family friend gave 14 year old Tori a purple journey to help her cope with her feelings after learning her father had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Ironically at that time neither realized purple is the awareness color for pancreatic cancer. Tori felt her journal offered her a safe place to write about her journey and also used this journal not only to write about her feelings but to also keep track of her dads symptoms, treatments, medications, test results, anything to do with his journey. Hear how this teenage girl helped co-facilitate a support group for other teenagers who had lost their parent and how her experience led her to where she is today. Only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County's only community radio station live streamed from UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center.
