On Silver Wings
3 journalers for this copy...
This is an autographed copy for her godfather, who also has now passed away from cancer. When Dr. Gunta Krumins-Caldwell's family was confronted with terminal illness, she was thrust into unfamiliar territory. She and her husband Ed were only in their mid 40's with two small children to rear and a newly established medical laboratory when Ed was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease. Although they saw coping with a terminal illness as an opportunity for themselves, their families and their friends to grow and learn together, they discovered that those close to them found their changed circumstances extremely challenging. With such a confronting disease, many people were unable to relate to them in a way that felt caring and supportive. Everyones mortality was questioned. On Silver Wings is a poignant account of a family dealing with a terminal illness. The experiences of Ed, Gunta and their two children are laid bare as readers discover within themselves the capacity to embrace their fellow beings in extremely difficult circumstances. Dr. Gunta Krumins-Caldwell is a lifelong resident of Melbourne, Australia. She has been practicing chiropractic for 35 years and now works as a holistic practitioner using various modalities that help her treat patients emotionally, physically and spiritually.
