REAL Speaker Series: The Middle Place

The Middle Place with Kelly Corrigan

At some time in our lives, we will all be impacted by the illness or aging of someone close to us. Through her poignant personal story of caring for her father through three bouts of cancer, her own fight with Stage III breast cancer, and her daughter's meningitis, Corrigan will share about the experience of living in what she has described as the Middle Place, "that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap."
