"It takes a lot of stamina, a lot of commitment, a lot of focus, a lot of giving up and starting over again. A lot of ‘I don’t think I can do this? and a lot of ‘oh yes, you can.’... The Share The Care™ group has helped make it easier to give Rick the highest quality of life possible whether he’s on the track of living or on the track of dying."

"I was still very weak and I could only attend half of the meeting, but it was very powerful and it made me very happy. I felt a greater degree of security, as though I was part of something bigger. I learned how wonderful and compassionate people could be. I didn’t feel like a burden because I realized that people get something valuable for themselves out of helping out."

"A key in ‘Share The Care™ ’ is you identify the connection to the person. Kaye herself believes it will work and is willing to let it work. Then there is Bethany and Ada’s belief and their willingness to ask people to be involved. That tactic helps people understand it is not a tragic or hopeless situation. Instead of not knowing how they can help, they hear what jobs are needed, and equally important, have the right to say no."

"I can now dispute the cliche that blood is thicker than water. I have an extended family that is my family. You are absolutely incredible. I want you all to know that you are my source of strength, my courage. You comfort me, you cry with me, you laugh with me. You have been my medicine. I love you from the bottom of my heart."

"I got to really know Susan and get a first hand lesson in courage and great humor in the midst of trauma, distress and pain. As for the group I felt women sharing real respect for each other, true sensitivity and instant warm camaraderie."
"I learned the ‘facts of life’...that we will all die. Somehow it isn't as frightening as it was. And that if we ask for help, it's there. And though we may feel alone, if we have courage to let others in, others will be there."
"I found your book about 2 and a half years ago when a friend was being treated for cancer. I was the coordinator of her Share The Care™ group and the book told me everything I needed to get started. We took care of our friend until she died in April of 1999 and it was a profound experience. During that time, I spoke to several churches in the Madison WI area about Share The Care™ and many more groups have been formed."
