Book Description Memoir Health
Caring for someone you love who is suffering from a terminal illness can be one of the greatest honours in life. Helping a loved one to die with peace, grace and dignity is their human right and a privilege for their carer to enable. It can be a truly transformative experience.
In Peaceful Breeze Mark Carrington shares his searingly honest account of nursing his much-loved mother after she was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014.
As his mum’s son, carer and advocate, Mark felt alone and under tremendous pressure to look after her the best he could; at the time, he wished that there was a practical guide to support him as he was supporting his mum.
Peaceful Breeze is Mark’s profound journey through terminal illness; from his mum’s initial diagnoses, through her valiant fight, to her ultimate passing. He charts the emotional turmoil - from complete despair to moments of joy with his mum that will live on forever - the stress, the difficult decisions he had to make and finally the all-consuming grief he experienced at her loss.
Mark Carrington story is one of bravery, devotion, love and hope, one which he hopes will support and inform other carers as they nurse and cherish their own family and friends.
