  • IN THE EYE AND SHE SAID, "MOMMY, ARE YOU GOING TO DIE?"
  • 00:00:25.050 --> 00:00:28.160

  • OF ENDORSING IT?"
  • 00:01:09.250 --> 00:01:10.270

  • NOT JUST BECAUSE SHE IS

  • A FELLOW BRIT, BUT BECAUSE
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:22.080

  • OF YOUR BOOK IS BREATHE AGAIN :
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:36.170
  • HOW TO LIVE WELL
  • 00:01:36.170 --> 00:01:37.280
  • WHEN LIFE FALLS APART.
  • 00:01:37.280 --> 00:01:40.120
  • HOW DID LIFE
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:41.140
  • Niki: WELL, I THINK FOR
  • 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:43.180
  • SO MANY PEOPLE LIFE CAN
  • 00:01:43.180 --> 00:01:44.220
  • FALL APART IN AN INSTANT
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:47.050
  • AND LIFE CAN UNRAVEL SLOWLY
  • 00:01:47.050 --> 00:01:49.010
  • I THINK FOR ME
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:51.110
  • IT WAS BOTH/AND.
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:54.130
  • I LOST MY MOM TO CANCER;
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.040
  • SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH
  • 00:01:56.040 --> 00:01:58.020
  • SMALL CELL AGGRESSIVE LUNG
  • 00:01:58.020 --> 00:01:59.090
  • CANCER, WHICH IF YOU KNOW
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:00.190
  • ANYTHING ABOUT CANCER
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:01.270
  • IT IS A PRETTY BRUTAL ONE.
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:04.140
  • SHE DIED IN HER EARLY 60s.
  • 00:02:04.140 --> 00:02:06.210
  • BEFORE THAT SHE WAS FIT,
  • 00:02:06.210 --> 00:02:08.110
  • HEALTHY, LOVED HIKING,
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:09.250
  • HAD MOVED TO VANCOUVER, CANADA
  • 00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:12.220
  • WHEN SHE REMARRIED; SO LOVED
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:14.040
  • THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST.
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:16.170
  • SO SHE DIED FAR TOO YOUNG
  • 00:02:16.170 --> 00:02:18.140
  • AND FAR TOO SUDDENLY.
  • 00:02:18.140 --> 00:02:20.080
  • AND THEN JUST ABOUT
  • 00:02:20.080 --> 00:02:21.140
  • SIX YEARS LATER, MY SISTER JO
  • 00:02:21.140 --> 00:02:24.040
  • GOT THE SAME THING;
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:25.160
  • SMALL CELL AGGRESSIVE
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:26.210
  • LUNG CANCER AND LIKE HER MOM,
  • 00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:29.070
  • OUR MOM ONLY SURVIVED
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.180
  • 14 MONTHS.
  • 00:02:30.180 --> 00:02:32.120
  • SO WITH BOTH THOSE TWO
  • 00:02:32.120 --> 00:02:34.120
  • BACK TO BACK, AND WHEN
  • 00:02:34.120 --> 00:02:35.280
  • MY MOM HAD CANCER I WAS
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:37.040
  • IN ENGLAND, SHE WAS
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:38.080
  • IN VANCOUVER SO WE HAD THAT
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:40.040
  • LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:42.180
  • I'M THE YOUNGEST OF THREE
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:43.230
  • GIRLS AND WE WERE ALL
  • 00:02:44.090 --> 00:02:47.090
  • IN ENGLAND AND SHE WAS
  • 00:02:47.090 --> 00:02:48.270
  • IN CANADA.
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:50.170
  • AND THEN WHEN JO GOT CANCER,
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:52.250
  • I BY THEN HAD MOVED
  • 00:02:52.250 --> 00:02:54.100
  • TO CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA
  • 00:02:54.100 --> 00:02:56.080
  • AND SHE WAS IN THE SOUTHWEST
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:57.220
  • OF ENGLAND, AND SO AGAIN,
  • 00:02:57.220 --> 00:02:59.130
  • ANOTHER LONG DISTANCE
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:01.110
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:02.220
  • SO OVER TIME MY LIFE WAS --
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:04.120
  • I WAS GOING THROUGH GRIEF
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:06.010
  • AND FIGURING OUT WHAT
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:07.070
  • THIS MEANT AND HOW TO DEAL
  • 00:03:07.070 --> 00:03:08.270
  • WITH IT WITH YOUNG CHILDREN.
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:11.030
  • AND THEN JUST SIX WEEKS AFTER
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:13.260
  • LOSING JO ON NEW YEAR'S EVE
  • 00:03:13.260 --> 00:03:15.190
  • 2011-12, WHEN EVERYONE ELSE
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:17.170
  • WAS CELEBRATING WE WERE
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.060
  • WITH HER AS SHE PASSED AWAY.
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:22.060
  • SIX WEEKS AFTER THAT
  • 00:03:22.060 --> 00:03:23.110
  • I WAS DIAGNOSED.
  • 00:03:23.110 --> 00:03:24.220
  • Sheila: THAT'S JUST
  • 00:03:24.220 --> 00:03:25.240
  • DEVASTATING!
  • 00:03:25.240 --> 00:03:26.270
  • THAT IS SO MUCH LOSS
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:28.010
  • PILED UPON EACH OTHER.
  • 00:03:28.010 --> 00:03:30.020
  • HOW DID YOU DISCOVER
  • 00:03:30.020 --> 00:03:31.070
  • THAT YOU HAD CANCER?
  • 00:03:31.070 --> 00:03:33.080
  • Niki: I WENT TO THE DOCTOR
  • 00:03:33.080 --> 00:03:34.210
  • ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:36.010
  • I WAS FIT AND I WAS HEALTHY.
  • 00:03:36.010 --> 00:03:37.230
  • I HAD JUST RAN A MARATHON
  • 00:03:37.230 --> 00:03:39.280
  • AND I MENTIONED SOMETHING
  • 00:03:39.280 --> 00:03:41.240
  • AND SHE WAS LIKE, "WELL,
  • 00:03:41.240 --> 00:03:43.090
  • LET'S GET YOU IN FOR
  • 00:03:43.090 --> 00:03:44.140
  • A COLONOSCOPY NOW.
  • 00:03:44.140 --> 00:03:45.190
  • NOW INSURANCE WILL
  • 00:03:45.190 --> 00:03:47.010
  • PAY FOR IT."
  • 00:03:47.010 --> 00:03:48.070
  • SO I WENT WITH A GIRLFRIEND
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:49.180
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO GET
  • 00:03:49.180 --> 00:03:51.140
  • MY HUSBAND OUT OF WORK.
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:53.010
  • MY GIRLFRIEND SAID
  • 00:03:53.010 --> 00:03:54.030
  • SHE WOULD TAKE ME.
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:55.260
  • AND RATHER RIDICULOUSLY
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:57.110
  • I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE
  • 00:03:57.110 --> 00:03:58.140
  • A NICE GIRLS' DAY OUT.
  • 00:03:58.140 --> 00:04:00.080
  • BUT WE ENDED UP SITTING
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:01.250
  • IN A SMALL SOULLESS ROOM
  • 00:04:01.250 --> 00:04:03.230
  • AND BEING TOLD THAT I HAD
  • 00:04:03.230 --> 00:04:05.080
  • A FIVE CENTIMETER TUMOR,
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:07.110
  • AND I HAD RECTAL CANCER.
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:09.080
  • SO AS YOU CAN IMAGINE
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.150
  • MY LIFE FELL APART.
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:11.270
  • Randy: HOW EARLY
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.010
  • DID THEY CATCH IT?
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:14.170
  • Niki: WELL, I WAS STAGE 3
  • 00:04:14.170 --> 00:04:16.140
  • SO THAT MEANT IT HAD MADE
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:17.260
  • A BID FOR FREEDOM AND FOUND
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:19.050
  • ITS WAY TO SOME LYMPH NODES
  • 00:04:19.050 --> 00:04:22.040
  • BUT NO FURTHER THAN THAT
  • 00:04:22.040 --> 00:04:23.200
  • WHICH WAS A BLESSING.
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:25.090
  • Sheila: WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:26.150
  • TO YOU THAT DAY?
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:27.220
  • I'M WONDERING, WHEN I WAS
  • 00:04:27.220 --> 00:04:28.280
  • READING YOUR BOOK I WAS
  • 00:04:28.280 --> 00:04:30.030
  • TRYING TO PUT MYSELF
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:31.070
  • IN YOUR SHOES AND FINDING IT
  • 00:04:31.070 --> 00:04:32.140
  • VERY DIFFICULT TO DO SO.
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:33.210
  • WHEN YOU EXPECT YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:34.240
  • GOING FOR A GIRLS' DAY OUT
  • 00:04:34.240 --> 00:04:36.010
  • AND THEN YOU SUDDENLY RECEIVE
  • 00:04:36.010 --> 00:04:37.090
  • THAT KIND OF DIAGNOSIS,
  • 00:04:37.090 --> 00:04:38.190
  • WHAT DID YOU DO?
  • 00:04:38.190 --> 00:04:40.110
  • Niki: WELL, I OFTEN SAY THAT
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:42.140
  • WAS, "OH!
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:45.160
  • IS THERE A THIRD OPTION?"
  • 00:04:45.160 --> 00:04:46.250
  • BECAUSE THEY SAID,
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:47.280
  • "IT'S EITHER CANCER
  • 00:04:47.280 --> 00:04:49.000
  • I THINK I WAS HALF STILL LOOPY
  • 00:04:51.140 --> 00:04:53.000
  • FROM THE DRUGS
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.070
  • AND HALF IN DENIAL.
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:55.220
  • I JUST SAID, "OH!
  • 00:04:55.220 --> 00:04:56.270
  • IS THERE A THIRD OPTION?"
  • 00:04:56.270 --> 00:04:58.080
  • AND MY SWEET FRIEND HAD JUST
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.170
  • LOST HER SISTER TO CANCER.
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:01.190
  • AND SO I THINK SHE WAS MORE
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:03.120
  • IN TUNE WITH WHAT WAS
  • 00:05:03.120 --> 00:05:04.140
  • GOING ON THAN I WAS.
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:07.000
  • SO THE PENNY DROPPED SLOWLY
  • 00:05:07.000 --> 00:05:09.000
  • OVER TIME ACTUALLY.
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:10.250
  • Sheila: ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:05:10.250 --> 00:05:12.010
  • THAT... I LOVE THIS.
  • 00:05:12.010 --> 00:05:13.210
  • WE BELIEVE WHEN
  • 00:05:15.090 --> 00:05:16.120
  • THE POOP HITS THE FAN!"
  • 00:05:16.120 --> 00:05:19.040
  • WHAT IS SOME OF THE RUBBISH
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:20.090
  • BELIEVE WHEN SOMETHING
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:23.140
  • TERRIBLE HAPPENS?
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:25.270
  • Niki: OH THERE IS SO MUCH.
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:27.060
  • I WISH I COULD SAY THAT
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.110
  • BEING A PASTOR'S WIFE GAVE ME
  • 00:05:28.110 --> 00:05:30.110
  • A TICKET OF FREEDOM FROM ALL
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:32.180
  • THIS STUFF THAT WE BELIEVE.
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.000
  • BUT I KIND OF LUMP IT
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.090
  • INTO TWO CATEGORIES.
  • 00:05:35.090 --> 00:05:36.280
  • I CALL IT "GOD TRASH"
  • 00:05:36.280 --> 00:05:38.000
  • AND "SELF TRASH" BECAUSE
  • 00:05:38.000 --> 00:05:39.170
  • I THINK THERE'S SO MUCH
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:41.030
  • WE BELIEVE ABOUT OURSELVES
  • 00:05:41.030 --> 00:05:42.270
  • THAT IS RUBBISH.
  • 00:05:42.270 --> 00:05:44.010
  • THERE'S A PSYCHOLOGIST
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:45.090
  • CALLED MARTIN SELIGMAN
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:47.080
  • WHO TALKS ABOUT THE THREE
  • 00:05:47.080 --> 00:05:49.020
  • BELIEFS THAT WE HOLD
  • 00:05:49.020 --> 00:05:50.280
  • THAT HOLD US BACK FROM
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:52.100
  • GETTING THROUGH SUFFERING
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.180
  • AND BUILDING RESILIENCE,
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:55.020
  • AND THEY ARE PERMANENCE,
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.150
  • PERSONALIZATION,
  • 00:05:56.150 --> 00:05:58.190
  • AND PERVASIVENESS.
  • 00:05:58.190 --> 00:05:59.290
  • THESE BELIEFS THAT
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:01.060
  • IT'S ALL MY FAULT.
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:02.270
  • MY LIFE WILL NEVER
  • 00:06:02.270 --> 00:06:04.000
  • BE ANY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:05.050
  • AND MY WHOLE LIFE
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:06.150
  • IS NOW RUINED.
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:07.280
  • AND ACTUALLY, WHEN WE LOOK
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:09.260
  • AT THINGS WITH PERSPECTIVE,
  • 00:06:09.260 --> 00:06:12.260
  • THOSE THINGS AREN'T TRUE.
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:14.030
  • EVEN IF WE HAVE JUST
  • 00:06:14.030 --> 00:06:15.080
  • BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH SOMETHING,
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.180
  • EVEN IF WE HAVE LOST
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:17.250
  • A LOVED ONE OR WE'RE BATTLING
  • 00:06:17.250 --> 00:06:19.270
  • DEPRESSION OR WHATEVER
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.020
  • IT MIGHT BE, THESE BELIEFS,
  • 00:06:21.020 --> 00:06:23.230
  • IF WE CAN PUT TRUTH
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:26.180
  • WHERE THESE LIES ARE,
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:28.120
  • THAT'S WHEN WE CAN START
  • 00:06:28.120 --> 00:06:29.200
  • TO MOVE THROUGH.
  • 00:06:29.200 --> 00:06:30.290
  • SO THAT'S THE KIND OF SELF
  • 00:06:30.290 --> 00:06:32.040
  • TRASH THAT I TALK ABOUT.
  • 00:06:32.040 --> 00:06:34.030
  • AND THEN THE GOD TRASH.
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:35.220
  • THERE'S SO MUCH.
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:36.260
  • THE STUFF THAT I BELIEVED:
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:38.240
  • GOD'S ANGRY AT ME.
  • 00:06:38.240 --> 00:06:40.180
  • HE'S TRYING TO
  • 00:06:40.180 --> 00:06:41.200
  • TEACH ME SOMETHING.
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:42.230
  • IF I COULD JUST FIGURE OUT
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:43.240
  • WHAT ON EARTH IT WAS,
  • 00:06:43.240 --> 00:06:45.040
  • YOU KNOW, THEN WE'D
  • 00:06:45.040 --> 00:06:46.120
  • GET THROUGH THIS.
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:48.030
  • OR MAYBE HE'S NOT AS GOOD
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:50.000
  • AND AS MERCIFUL AS
  • 00:06:50.000 --> 00:06:51.010
  • I THOUGHT HE WAS.
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:52.210
  • MAYBE HE'S LEFT AND
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:54.000
  • HE'S HELPING SOMEBODY
  • 00:06:54.000 --> 00:06:56.000
  • MORE SPIRITUAL THAN ME
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:57.110
  • WHO ANNOTATES THEIR BIBLE.
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:59.020
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:06:59.020 --> 00:07:00.170
  • TO THAT DAY OF YOUR DIAGNOSIS.
  • 00:07:01.290 --> 00:07:03.250
  • YOU'VE JUST LOST YOUR SISTER
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:05.250
  • SIX WEEKS PRIOR,
  • 00:07:05.250 --> 00:07:07.110
  • YOU KNEW THERE WAS POSSIBLY
  • 00:07:07.110 --> 00:07:08.180
  • YOUR FAMILY, YOU'RE MARRIED,
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:11.150
  • YOU'RE HUSBAND'S...
  • 00:07:11.150 --> 00:07:13.290
  • YOU STARTED A CHURCH
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:15.060
  • IN CHARLOTTE, YES?
  • 00:07:15.060 --> 00:07:16.110
  • YOU HAVE CHILDREN?
  • 00:07:16.110 --> 00:07:17.130
  • Niki: YES!
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:18.180
  • Randy: HOW OLD ARE THEY?
  • 00:07:18.180 --> 00:07:19.240
  • Niki: THEY WERE 14, 12, AND 9,
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:21.200
  • AND SO THEY WERE
  • 00:07:21.200 --> 00:07:22.250
  • COMING AT THIS
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:24.230
  • WITH THE VIEW THAT IF YOU
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:26.180
  • GOT CANCER YOU DIED
  • 00:07:26.180 --> 00:07:28.110
  • AND DIED QUICKLY.
  • 00:07:28.110 --> 00:07:29.220
  • AND SO IT WAS DIFFICULT
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:31.160
  • TO KNOW HOW TO TALK TO THEM
  • 00:07:31.160 --> 00:07:33.030
  • ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.110
  • Sheila: HOW DID YOU MAKE
  • 00:07:34.110 --> 00:07:35.170
  • THOSE KIND OF DECISIONS
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:36.220
  • AS TO WHAT WAS APPROPRIATE
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:37.280
  • AND WHAT WAS NOT?
  • 00:07:37.280 --> 00:07:39.090
  • Niki: WE TALKED LONG AND HARD
  • 00:07:39.090 --> 00:07:40.170
  • WHEN I FIRST GOT THE
  • 00:07:40.170 --> 00:07:41.220
  • DIAGNOSIS, WHEN THEY WEREN'T
  • 00:07:41.220 --> 00:07:42.250
  • SURE WHAT IT WAS AND WHAT THE
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:44.020
  • TREATMENT PROGRAM WOULD BE,
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.040
  • AND WHAT MY PROGNOSIS
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:46.060
  • I THOUGHT THE HEAT-SEEKING
  • 00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:48.100
  • MISSILE OF DEATH THAT WAS
  • 00:07:48.100 --> 00:07:49.140
  • OBVIOUSLY A FAMILY TRAIT
  • 00:07:49.140 --> 00:07:51.110
  • HAD LOCKED IN ON ME...
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:53.060
  • AND SO WE HAD TO DECIDE,
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:57.190
  • HOW MUCH WERE WE GOING
  • 00:07:57.190 --> 00:07:58.210
  • TO TELL THE KIDS?
  • 00:07:58.210 --> 00:07:59.230
  • WHAT WERE WE GOING
  • 00:07:59.230 --> 00:08:00.250
  • TO TELL THE KIDS?
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:01.260
  • WHEN WERE WE GOING
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:02.280
  • TO TELL THE KIDS?
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:03.290
  • AND GIVEN THEY WERE AT THAT
  • 00:08:03.290 --> 00:08:05.020
  • IMPRESSIONABLE AGE,
  • 00:08:05.020 --> 00:08:06.040
  • NOT QUITE OLD ENOUGH
  • 00:08:06.040 --> 00:08:07.090
  • TO HAVE DEVELOPED ADULT
  • 00:08:07.090 --> 00:08:08.190
  • COPING MECHANISMS AND SKILLS,
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:10.210
  • BUT STILL NOT YOUNG ENOUGH
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:12.230
  • THAT THEY WOULDN'T REALLY
  • 00:08:12.230 --> 00:08:13.260
  • KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON,
  • 00:08:13.260 --> 00:08:16.090
  • WE DECIDED TO KEEP THEM
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:18.030
  • ABREAST OF WHAT WE KNEW
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.290
  • AND TELL THEM WHAT WE KNEW
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:21.080
  • AND NOT HOLD ANYTHING BACK.
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:22.180
  • WE DECIDED WE'RE "TEAM HARDY."
  • 00:08:22.180 --> 00:08:24.030
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO OPERATE
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:25.050
  • IN HALF-TRUTHS OR LIES
  • 00:08:25.050 --> 00:08:27.160
  • OR KEEP ANYTHING FROM THEM.
  • 00:08:27.160 --> 00:08:29.070
  • AND SO WE SAT AROUND
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:30.160
  • THE TABLE AND TOLD THEM.
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:31.250
  • Randy: WHAT WAS
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.010
  • THEIR RESPONSE?
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:35.030
  • Niki: YOU COULD SEE
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:36.120
  • THE BLOOD DRAINING
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:37.220
  • FROM THEIR FACES.
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:40.030
  • ONCE THE WORD CANCER AND MOM
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:43.270
  • IN THE SAME SENTENCE,
  • 00:08:43.270 --> 00:08:46.210
  • ANYTHING ELSE WE TRIED TO SAY,
  • 00:08:46.210 --> 00:08:49.060
  • I THINK FELL ON DEAF EARS.
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.230
  • AND THEN IT WAS OUR DAUGHTER
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:52.040
  • SOPHIE WHO LOOKED ME
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:53.280
  • IN THE EYE
  • 00:08:53.280 --> 00:08:55.010
  • AND SHE SAID, "MOMMY,
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:56.080
  • ARE YOU GOING TO DIE?"
  • 00:08:56.080 --> 00:08:58.160
  • THAT'S WHEN I SAID,
  • 00:08:58.160 --> 00:09:01.010
  • "YES, AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.190
  • BUT I HOPE NOT FROM THIS.
  • 00:09:02.190 --> 00:09:04.170
  • AND WHATEVER HAPPENS GOD
  • 00:09:04.170 --> 00:09:05.210
  • IS WITH US AND HE IS GOOD."
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:07.180
  • AND TO THIS DAY I SAY THAT
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:09.130
  • THAT PEP TALK WAS JUST
  • 00:09:09.130 --> 00:09:10.210
  • AS MUCH FOR ME AS IT WAS
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:11.240
  • FOR HER.
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:13.000
  • Randy: DID YOU FEEL IT?
  • 00:09:13.000 --> 00:09:14.060
  • DID YOU FEEL THAT GOD WAS
  • 00:09:14.060 --> 00:09:15.090
  • WITH YOU IN THAT MOMENT?
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:16.170
  • Niki: YES! AND INTERESTINGLY,
  • 00:09:16.170 --> 00:09:17.260
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:09:17.260 --> 00:09:19.020
  • I LEARNED OVER MY JOURNEY
  • 00:09:19.020 --> 00:09:20.260
  • WAS THAT IT'S POSSIBLE
  • 00:09:20.260 --> 00:09:22.190
  • TO HOLD SO CALLED CONFLICTING
  • 00:09:22.190 --> 00:09:25.000
  • EMOTIONS IN THE PALM
  • 00:09:25.000 --> 00:09:26.140
  • OF OUR HAND AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:09:26.140 --> 00:09:28.230
  • I'M A VERY LOGICAL PERSON.
  • 00:09:28.230 --> 00:09:30.090
  • I'M NOT TERRIBLY IN TUNE
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.210
  • WITH MY EMOTIONS BUT I USED
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:33.170
  • TO THINK THERE WAS HAPPINESS
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:35.270
  • AND JOY AND PEACE.
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:37.140
  • AND THEN OVER HERE WAS ANXIETY
  • 00:09:37.140 --> 00:09:39.020
  • AND FEAR AND ANGER.
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:41.100
  • BUT THROUGH THIS I LEARNED
  • 00:09:41.100 --> 00:09:43.150
  • THAT I COULD BE LYING ON
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:44.200
  • A SCANNING MACHINE
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:46.070
  • AND FEELING FEAR AND PEACE
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.280
  • AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:09:48.280 --> 00:09:50.140
  • AND I COULD FEEL COMFORT
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:52.210
  • AND ALONE AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:09:52.210 --> 00:09:55.040
  • SO THAT WAS
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:56.120
  • A NEW EXPERIENCE FOR ME.
  • 00:09:56.120 --> 00:09:57.210
  • Sheila: WHY DID YOU CALL
  • 00:09:57.210 --> 00:09:58.270
  • THE BOOK BREATHE AGAIN ?
  • 00:09:58.270 --> 00:10:00.290
  • Niki: YES. IT'S ABOUT
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:02.280
  • HOW WHEN LIFE FALLS APART
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:06.100
  • WE CAN EITHER [Gasps]
  • 00:10:06.100 --> 00:10:08.120
  • HOLD OUR BREATH OR WE GET
  • 00:10:08.120 --> 00:10:10.130
  • TO THIS PLACE OF MERELY
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:12.050
  • SURVIVING AND WE JUST CAN'T
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:14.010
  • TAKE ANOTHER BREATH.
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:15.240
  • WHAT I FOUND WAS WHEN I WAS
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:17.170
  • DIAGNOSED, YOU ARE CALLED
  • 00:10:17.170 --> 00:10:18.230
  • A SURVIVOR FROM THE MOMENT
  • 00:10:18.230 --> 00:10:20.030
  • YOU'RE DIAGNOSED.
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:21.120
  • I THOUGHT YOU HAD TO ACTUALLY
  • 00:10:21.120 --> 00:10:22.230
  • SURVIVE AND GET THROUGH IT
  • 00:10:22.230 --> 00:10:24.100
  • BUT NO, THE MOMENT
  • 00:10:24.100 --> 00:10:25.160
  • YOU'RE DIAGNOSED YOU'RE CALLED
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:26.210
  • "A SURVIVOR."
  • 00:10:26.210 --> 00:10:28.010
  • SO I WAS LIKE, "I'M A BRICK
  • 00:10:28.010 --> 00:10:29.130
  • WITH A STIFF AND
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:30.280
  • PERFECTLY WAXED UPPER LIP.
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:32.070
  • I'VE GOT THIS.
  • 00:10:32.070 --> 00:10:33.200
  • AND I'M GOING TO SURVIVE."
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:36.220
  • I THOUGHT WITH MY GRIT
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:38.000
  • AND DETERMINATION AND MY FAITH
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:39.080
  • IN MY GOD, I'VE GOT THIS.
  • 00:10:39.080 --> 00:10:41.170
  • AND FOR A WHILE, I WAS GOOD
  • 00:10:41.170 --> 00:10:43.200
  • UNTIL I HAD CHEMO
  • 00:10:43.200 --> 00:10:45.100
  • AND RADIATION.
  • 00:10:45.100 --> 00:10:46.170
  • I HAD SURGERY WHERE
  • 00:10:46.170 --> 00:10:48.040
  • I HAD AN OSTOMY BAG.
  • 00:10:49.150 --> 00:10:51.000
  • AND THEN I HAD MORE CHEMO
  • 00:10:51.000 --> 00:10:52.110
  • AND A PORT, AND GOT PLUGGED
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:54.190
  • EVENTUALLY, I WAS EXHAUSTED,
  • 00:10:56.230 --> 00:10:58.250
  • I WAS NAUSEOUS,
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:10:59.280
  • I HAD NEUROPATHY,
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.280
  • AND SURVIVING WAS ALL
  • 00:11:01.280 --> 00:11:03.040
  • I WAS DOING.
  • 00:11:03.040 --> 00:11:04.140
  • AND REALLY, WE GET INTO
  • 00:11:04.140 --> 00:11:05.190
  • THIS SURVIVAL MODE OF
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:07.120
  • IF I CAN JUST...
  • 00:11:07.120 --> 00:11:09.090
  • AND I CAN'T TAKE
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:10.130
  • ANOTHER BREATH.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:11.190
  • IF I CAN JUST
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:12.270
  • GET THROUGH THIS.
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:14.050
  • SO THAT'S HOW BREATHE AGAIN
  • 00:11:14.050 --> 00:11:15.180
  • CAME ABOUT.
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:16.200
  • ABOUT HOW EVEN IN THE MIDST
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:17.220
  • OF WHAT WE'RE GOING THROUGH,
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:18.290
  • NOT WAITING FOR IT TO END,
  • 00:11:18.290 --> 00:11:21.090
  • WE CAN BREATHE AGAIN
  • 00:11:21.090 --> 00:11:22.150
  • Randy: I'VE OBVIOUSLY NOT
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:24.190
  • BEEN THROUGH WHAT YOU'VE
  • 00:11:24.190 --> 00:11:25.270
  • BEEN THROUGH BUT I HAVE
  • 00:11:25.270 --> 00:11:27.030
  • EXPERIENCED THE LOSS
  • 00:11:27.030 --> 00:11:28.060
  • OF A LOVED ONE WITH CANCER.
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:29.190
  • YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:11:31.280 --> 00:11:33.040
  • YOU CAN'T BREATHE.
  • 00:11:33.040 --> 00:11:34.150
  • YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:11:34.150 --> 00:11:35.210
  • YOU'RE DROWNING.
  • 00:11:35.210 --> 00:11:36.230
  • AND ACTUALLY, THAT'S
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:37.270
  • AN ILLUSTRATION YOU USE
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:39.080
  • ABOUT DROWNING BECAUSE
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:40.200
  • YOU CAN'T ALWAYS...
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:43.160
  • YOU TELL A STORY ABOUT
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:44.210
  • THE RIPTIDES BECAUSE
  • 00:11:44.210 --> 00:11:46.130
  • THAT MEANT A LOT TO ME.
  • 00:11:46.130 --> 00:11:48.220
  • Niki: YEAH. SO WHEN I WAS
  • 00:11:48.220 --> 00:11:50.100
  • A 20-SOMETHING, YOUNG
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:51.260
  • AND CAREFREE BEFORE I WAS
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:53.120
  • MARRIED, I WAS ABLE
  • 00:11:53.120 --> 00:11:54.210
  • TO DO SOME TRAVELING.
  • 00:11:54.210 --> 00:11:56.090
  • AND IN AUSTRALIA, I WENT
  • 00:11:56.090 --> 00:11:58.020
  • SWIMMING AND SWAM BETWEEN
  • 00:11:58.020 --> 00:11:59.240
  • THE FLAGS IN THE SAFETY
  • 00:11:59.240 --> 00:12:01.050
  • ZONE WHERE I WAS TOLD --
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:02.120
  • I FOLLOWED THE RULES BUT
  • 00:12:02.120 --> 00:12:04.000
  • I GOT SWEPT OUT TO SEA
  • 00:12:04.000 --> 00:12:05.220
  • BY A RIPTIDE.
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.030
  • I REALIZED HOW FAR OUT I WAS.
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:08.280
  • I TURNED TO SWIM BACK
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:10.110
  • TO THE SHORE AND I COULD NOT
  • 00:12:10.110 --> 00:12:12.060
  • FIGHT THE RIPTIDE.
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:14.050
  • AND IT'S THE SAME IN LIFE.
  • 00:12:14.050 --> 00:12:15.130
  • WE TRY AND WE TURN
  • 00:12:15.130 --> 00:12:16.170
  • AND WE FIGHT WHAT
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:17.230
  • WE'RE BATTLING.
  • 00:12:17.230 --> 00:12:18.280
  • BUT ACTUALLY, THE WAY
  • 00:12:18.280 --> 00:12:20.070
  • TO SURVIVE A RIPTIDE,
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:21.150
  • IN FACT, THE WAY TO THRIVE
  • 00:12:21.150 --> 00:12:22.240
  • IN A RIPTIDE, AND PEOPLE
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:23.290
  • ACTUALLY GO SWIMMING
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:25.050
  • IN RIPTIDES WHEN THEY KNOW
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:26.090
  • WHAT THEY'RE DOING,
  • 00:12:26.090 --> 00:12:27.170
  • IS TO TURN AND SWIM PARALLEL
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:29.030
  • TO THE SHORE.
  • 00:12:29.030 --> 00:12:30.150
  • SO THAT FEELING OF I CAN'T
  • 00:12:30.150 --> 00:12:33.110
  • BREATHE BECAUSE THE WAVES
  • 00:12:33.110 --> 00:12:34.160
  • WERE CRASHING OVER ME
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:36.000
  • AND YOU KNOW YOU GET TUMBLED
  • 00:12:36.000 --> 00:12:37.180
  • AND I'D PULL UP AND
  • 00:12:37.180 --> 00:12:38.200
  • THE NEXT ONE WOULD COME.
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:41.040
  • EVENTUALLY, I GOT RESCUED
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:42.100
  • BY A GIRL ON A SURFBOARD.
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:43.280
  • BUT I DIDN'T LEARN ABOUT
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.270
  • HOW TO SWIM IN A RIPTIDE
  • 00:12:45.270 --> 00:12:47.070
  • UNTIL I HAD A FEW CHOICE WORDS
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:48.120
  • WITH THE LIFE GUARD BECAUSE
  • 00:12:48.120 --> 00:12:49.170
  • I WAS LIKE, "I FOLLOWED
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:50.210
  • THE RULES!"
  • 00:12:50.210 --> 00:12:51.280
  • AND DON'T WE FEEL
  • 00:12:51.280 --> 00:12:53.010
  • I FOLLOWED THE RULES, GOD!
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:55.290
  • I'M A GOOD CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:12:55.290 --> 00:12:57.070
  • I BROUGHT UP MY FAMILY WELL.
  • 00:12:57.070 --> 00:12:58.290
  • FOR ME, I MOVE MY FAMILY
  • 00:12:58.290 --> 00:13:00.250
  • AND WE PLANTED A CHURCH
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:04.020
  • AND THIS?
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:05.090
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
  • 00:13:05.090 --> 00:13:06.160
  • AND SO THAT'S...
  • 00:13:06.160 --> 00:13:07.190
  • Randy: YEAH, BUT WHEN THOSE
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:08.220
  • WAVES HIT AND YOU BARELY
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:10.020
  • GET YOUR HEAD BACK UP
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:11.060
  • AND THEY HIT AGAIN, YOU DON'T
  • 00:13:11.060 --> 00:13:12.180
  • KNOW WHAT TO DO REALLY.
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:14.100
  • WE HAVE TO TURN.
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:16.090
  • Niki: EXACTLY.
  • 00:13:16.090 --> 00:13:17.130
  • AND THAT'S WHERE
  • 00:13:17.130 --> 00:13:18.150
  • THE LIFE IS.
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:19.180
  • OF THE STEPS THAT YOU GAVE.
  • 00:13:20.220 --> 00:13:21.260
  • I'LL GO THROUGH A COUPLE.
  • 00:13:21.260 --> 00:13:23.050
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:24.120
  • Niki: YES!
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:27.170
  • WELL, I DON'T THINK BRAVE
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:28.270
  • IS SOMETHING WE ARE
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:30.100
  • OR AREN'T BY NATURE OF
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:31.290
  • THE GENES WE'VE BEEN
  • 00:13:31.290 --> 00:13:33.060
  • HANDED DOWN.
  • 00:13:33.060 --> 00:13:34.170
  • IT'S A CHOICE WE CAN MAKE.
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:36.240
  • IT'S LIKE WHEN WE TOLD
  • 00:13:36.240 --> 00:13:38.000
  • THE CHILDREN, IT DIDN'T
  • 00:13:38.000 --> 00:13:39.060
  • FEEL BRAVE BUT IT WAS
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:41.100
  • A STEP TOWARDS LIFE,
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:43.250
  • A STEP TOWARDS HONESTY
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:45.120
  • WITH OUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:13:45.120 --> 00:13:47.060
  • AND SO WHEN WE CHOOSE BRAVE
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:48.250
  • THAT'S THE STEP THAT WILL
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:50.030
  • AND MORE FREEDOM.
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:53.240
  • IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BIG
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:54.270
  • BUT IT DOES HAVE
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.000
  • TO BE INTENTIONAL.
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:57.030
  • AND FOR MANY, IT CAN BE
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:58.110
  • WHEN DEPRESSION HITS.
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:00.200
  • OR HAVING A DIFFICULT
  • 00:14:00.200 --> 00:14:03.120
  • CONVERSATION WITH A FRIEND.
  • 00:14:03.120 --> 00:14:06.020
  • OR GOING TO WORK WHEN
  • 00:14:06.020 --> 00:14:07.090
  • YOUR BOSS IS A NIGHTMARE.
  • 00:14:07.090 --> 00:14:08.210
  • THESE THINGS.
  • 00:14:08.210 --> 00:14:09.250
  • Sheila: WHAT ABOUT
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:10.270
  • THE ROLE OF COMMUNITY?
  • 00:14:10.270 --> 00:14:12.100
  • BECAUSE SOMETIMES WHEN
  • 00:14:12.100 --> 00:14:13.130
  • TROUBLE HITS IT CAN
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.180
  • BE INSTINCTIVE ALMOST
  • 00:14:14.180 --> 00:14:15.200
  • TO DRAW BACK.
  • 00:14:15.200 --> 00:14:16.250
  • YOU JUST ALMOST WANT
  • 00:14:16.250 --> 00:14:17.250
  • TO SELF PROTECT.
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:19.070
  • A PASTOR'S WIFE AND YOU'RE
  • 00:14:20.100 --> 00:14:21.110
  • HAVING SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:22.190
  • WHY GOD IS LETTING THESE
  • 00:14:22.190 --> 00:14:23.240
  • Sheila: SO HOW IMPORTANT
  • 00:14:25.030 --> 00:14:26.040
  • WAS COMMUNITY TO YOU?
  • 00:14:26.040 --> 00:14:27.110
  • Niki: WELL, COMMUNITY WAS
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.230
  • REALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:30.060
  • AND AT THE SAME TIME
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:31.120
  • I SHUNNED COMMUNITY.
  • 00:14:31.120 --> 00:14:32.210
  • SO I VERY MUCH HUNKERED DOWN.
  • 00:14:33.110 --> 00:14:36.110
  • IT WAS AS IF I HAD MY PEOPLE,
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:38.040
  • I HAD MY FAMILY
  • 00:14:38.040 --> 00:14:39.200
  • AND MY CLOSE FRIENDS
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:41.280
  • AND WE HAD THE CHURCH --
  • 00:14:41.280 --> 00:14:43.020
  • OUR CHURCH WAS AMAZING.
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:46.010
  • AND WE'RE A CHURCH THAT
  • 00:14:46.010 --> 00:14:47.050
  • LEADS WITH VULNERABILITY
  • 00:14:47.050 --> 00:14:48.100
  • FROM THE FRONT SO PEOPLE
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:49.270
  • KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:51.020
  • BUT IT WAS STILL, I HAD
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:52.030
  • RECTAL CANCER AND WHEN
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:53.040
  • YOUR HUSBAND SAYS "RECTAL
  • 00:14:53.040 --> 00:14:54.070
  • CANCER" FROM THE FRONT
  • 00:14:54.070 --> 00:14:55.110
  • OF CHURCH YOU THINK,
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:56.130
  • OH MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:14:56.130 --> 00:14:57.150
  • EVERYONE IS THINKING
  • 00:14:57.150 --> 00:14:58.170
  • ABOUT IT AND IT IS MINE!
  • 00:14:58.170 --> 00:14:59.170
  • Sheila: COULDN'T IT HAVE
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:00.190
  • JUST BEEN A NICER CANCER?
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:01.230
  • Niki: YES!
  • 00:15:01.230 --> 00:15:02.280
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME IT WAS
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:04.040
  • THE CANCER COMMUNITY THAT
  • 00:15:04.040 --> 00:15:05.120
  • I KIND OF WAS LIKE,
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.160
  • NO, THANK YOU.
  • 00:15:07.160 --> 00:15:08.280
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO DO ALL THAT.
  • 00:15:08.280 --> 00:15:11.060
  • I WAS ENCOURAGED TO TIME
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.190
  • AND TIME AGAIN BUT
  • 00:15:12.190 --> 00:15:13.230
  • I WAS LIKE...
  • 00:15:13.230 --> 00:15:14.290
  • AND IF I'M HONEST, I WAS
  • 00:15:14.290 --> 00:15:16.100
  • IN DENIAL, I'M NOT ONE
  • 00:15:16.100 --> 00:15:18.020
  • OF THEM.
  • 00:15:18.020 --> 00:15:19.180
  • I WAS ARROGANT, I DON'T
  • 00:15:19.180 --> 00:15:20.270
  • NEED THEM; NOTHING THAT
  • 00:15:20.270 --> 00:15:22.180
  • GOOGLE AND MY DOCTOR
  • 00:15:22.180 --> 00:15:24.080
  • CAN'T TELL ME.
  • 00:15:24.080 --> 00:15:26.280
  • AND ALSO, I WAS FRIGHTENED
  • 00:15:26.280 --> 00:15:29.010
  • BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE HAD
  • 00:15:29.010 --> 00:15:30.230
  • CANCER AND IF I GOT CLOSE
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:32.240
  • TO THEM THEY WERE MORE LIKELY
  • 00:15:32.240 --> 00:15:35.190
  • TO DIE THAN OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:37.230
  • AND I WASN'T SURE I COULD
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:38.270
  • HANDLE THAT.
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:40.070
  • SO THERE WAS PART OF ME
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.120
  • THAT SAID THANKS
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:43.200
  • BUT NO THANKS.
  • 00:15:43.200 --> 00:15:44.280
  • AND THEN I MET PEOPLE
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:48.130
  • ACTUALLY IN AN ONLINE
  • 00:15:48.130 --> 00:15:49.270
  • CANCER COMMUNITY AND THESE
  • 00:15:49.270 --> 00:15:51.070
  • WERE PEOPLE WHO WERE ABLE
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:52.150
  • TO OFFER EMPATHY
  • 00:15:52.150 --> 00:15:53.270
  • AND NOT JUST SYMPATHY.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.070
  • MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS WERE
  • 00:15:55.070 --> 00:15:56.140
  • WONDERFUL BUT THEY DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:15:56.140 --> 00:15:57.260
  • WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO SIT
  • 00:15:57.260 --> 00:15:59.050
  • IN A CHEMO CHAIR
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:00.160
  • OR FOR AN OSTOMY BAG TO LEAK
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:01.270
  • IN TARGET BUT
  • 00:16:01.270 --> 00:16:03.180
  • THESE PEOPLE DID.
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:05.160
  • AND SO IT WAS A DIFFERENT
  • 00:16:05.160 --> 00:16:06.290
  • RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:16:06.290 --> 00:16:08.070
  • I TALK A LOT IN THE BOOK
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:09.150
  • ABOUT THRIVING AND NOT
  • 00:16:09.150 --> 00:16:11.060
  • JUST SURVIVING LIFE.
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:13.120
  • AND THRIVING IS A TEAM SPORT
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:14.290
  • AND WE NEED COMMUNITY
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:17.090
  • AROUND US.
  • 00:16:17.090 --> 00:16:19.070
  • THE IMPORTANCE OF
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:21.250
  • GRATITUDE.
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:23.030
  • THAT'S GOT TO BE TOUGH.
  • 00:16:23.030 --> 00:16:24.100
  • WHEN YOU'VE JUST BEEN GIVEN
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:25.110
  • THE WORST DIAGNOSIS
  • 00:16:25.110 --> 00:16:26.140
  • PRACTICE GRATITUDE
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:29.160
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:30.220
  • RATHER THAN AT THE END OF IT?
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:32.060
  • Niki: YES. IT'S NOT EASY.
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:35.170
  • I TALK ABOUT HOW IT'S
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:37.170
  • IMPORTANT TO NOT JUST GIVE
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:39.190
  • THANKS FOR THE SHINY GLASSY
  • 00:16:39.190 --> 00:16:41.180
  • LOVELY THINGS BUT EVEN

  • I TALK ABOUT THE GAME THAT
  • 00:16:45.220 --> 00:16:48.040
  • WE PLAYED WITH THE KIDS
  • 00:16:48.040 --> 00:16:49.110
  • ONE TIME WHEN WE HAD A FLIGHT
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:51.030
  • THAT WAS DELAYED AND DELAYED
  • 00:16:51.030 --> 00:16:52.100
  • AND DELAYED.
  • 00:16:52.100 --> 00:16:53.210
  • WE ENDED UP SLEEPING ON
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:55.010

  • IN ALL THINGS GAME.
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:00.210
  • AND IT WAS LESS ABOUT
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:01.270
  • TEACHING OUR CHILDREN
  • 00:17:01.270 --> 00:17:03.070
  • KEEPING THEM HAPPY.
  • 00:17:04.260 --> 00:17:06.120

  • TO GIVE THANKS.
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:11.050
  • THAT YOU DON'T NEED TO SEE
  • 00:17:13.040 --> 00:17:14.250
  • THINGS DIFFERENTLY IN ORDER
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:17.050

  • 00:18:06.200 --> 00:18:08.170
  • -- I GET TO DO LAUNDRY!

  • Randy: I LOVE THAT, SHEILA,
  • 00:18:33.050 --> 00:18:34.170

  • IMPACT EVERY ONE OF US!
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:40.110
  • Randy: YEAH, BUT WE SEE THIS
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.290
  • ALSO WHEN WE GO INTO PLACES
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:43.190
  • WHERE CHILDREN ARE DYING
  • 00:18:43.190 --> 00:18:45.040
  • AND THEY'RE STARVING
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:46.100
  • AND THEY'RE MALNOURISHED.
  • 00:18:46.100 --> 00:18:47.190
  • WE FLIP THE SCRIPT AND
  • 00:18:47.190 --> 00:18:48.230
  • WE SAY, OKAY, HERE'S A BAD
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:50.000

  • I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:19:02.170 --> 00:19:03.230

  • THEY'VE GONE THROUGH THAT
  • 00:19:10.270 --> 00:19:12.010

  • THERE IS SUCH AN URGENT NEED.
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:22.280
  • NOT FOR A NEW IPHONE --
  • 00:19:22.280 --> 00:19:25.140
  • FOR A SIMPLE BOWL OF FOOD.
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.240
  • THAT'S ALL THEY'RE
  • 00:19:27.240 --> 00:19:29.000

  • RANDY, IT IS VERY DOABLE.
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:36.160
  • IT IS NOT LIKE IT TAKES
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:37.180
  • A TON OF MONEY.
  • 00:19:37.180 --> 00:19:38.200
  • IF WE ALL DO SOMETHING
  • 00:19:38.200 --> 00:19:39.280

  • IT DOESN'T WORK OUT BUT
  • 00:19:54.090 --> 00:19:55.200
  • IT WORKS BECAUSE WE HAVE
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:57.050
  • A PROCESS IN PLACE TO BRING
