Consider helping Looking Glass to build a Canadian National Treatment Centre for Eating Disorders, and maybe you can help give someone their life back so they can really live.

Confronting death is not something anyone wants to do. Nobody really wants to think about the fragility of life. It's a hard thought to grasp, that anyone might leave you at any moment. But living life to the fullest can depend on thinking through that possibility. Shortly after I found a home in Living Hope, Dwayne, who was already well loved by me and who I considered a kindred spirit contracted a rapidly acting form of cancer and passed away. It was such a terrible disappointment to me. I loved that man already, him and I had so many good conversations. He was a great person. And I am glad that I have a promise that I will see him again. Looking forward to it.

This seems like an odd picture to remember someone by... But this was a great moment. He dropped his cell phone in a paint can, and I caught the look on his face as he fished it out. It was a good moment.
