In this week's Spotlight we feature "What to Do When Life Hands You A Devastating Diagnosis" byL. J. Holloway.
Life as I knew it was interrupted abruptly by my Devastating Diagnosis. Albeit brief, in the scheme of life- I was forced to consider my mortality after reading the words "premature death." Things that once seemed important were no longer important as I sought refuge in the Love of family and friends.
Life quickly offered distinctions between Life before Diagnosis and Life after Diagnosis. Before my diagnosis I was in high demand and had an unending list of "Things to Do." After coming to terms with my diagnosis (after surgery), I am forced to deal with my need to be in control and schedule my life according to what I am able to DO.
L. J. Holloway is a thirty-something believer, who now has three Birthdays--the date of her birth, the date of her diagnosis and the date of her first surgery (also the day this book was born). Consistent with the three's in her life, L.J. is a native and resident of Jacksonville, Florida who plays on Amelia Island at historic American Beach and works in the Nation's Capital (Washington, D.C.). She is also the founder of All About HealthCare Advocates, an advocacy firm "where all they CARE about is health." An avid supporter of education, Ms. Holloway hosts an Annual Benefit in support of students with potential who matriculate at HBCU's. L.J. Holloway earned the Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Florida College of Law and in her spare time enjoys fine dining, international travel and spending time with mature adults who impart wisdom.
