Josephine will offer practical tips – things that are easy to do and are enormously helpful. She will present them with honesty and humor, as she does in her book: “If There’s Anything I Can Do – What You Can Do When Serious Illness Strikes.” Each chapter focuses on a topic such as communication, phone calls, food, visits, flowers, what to say or not to say, and other issues that face patients, caregivers, and their friends.

A lucky 50/50 raffle winner will get her book, which she is donating. The book costs $14.95 and is available at Park Road Books, at http://www.anythingicandobook.com/, and at amazon.com.
