Dear Colleagues,
I wanted to give you a heads-up about Jeanette Stanfield’s book, Just
Checkin’ On Ya, soon to be available through ICA in Canada and Australia.

Having had the privilege of reading this memoir in advance, I would
highly commend it to you as a gem.  It powerfully chronicles her
experience as palliative caregiver to her beloved husband, Brian, during
his sacred journey of dying.
May I share with you excerpts from what others who have reviewed the book
have said:
With fearless honesty, Jeanette Stanfield details the journey of true
life partners in the precious last years of one partner’s life on Earth. 
 Having lost my own husband only a year ago, I was touched by the stories
and reflections, which grace her pages.  Her words validated my own
experience of care giving, loss, and strange newness of life
Webb, Poet
Jeanette’s memoir is a testament to the painful, universal experience of
losing a loved one and is also a witness to the unexpected gift that
results in fully embracing human life, even through death. She poignantly
illustrates the classic stages of the grief process that both she and
Brian experienced -- from denial to acceptance -- albeit at very
different times, as is usually the case
Benjamin Crocker, Primary Care
The palliative caregiver's role is overwhelming and exhausting during the
walk with a loved one to Mystery's door.  The journey is also filled with
excitement and wonder.  Jeanette fully embraced her journey with her
husband and courageously describes the path for us through her book
Heidi Holmes, Palliative Care Nurse
