My guest Joe DiNardo is an attorney from Buffalo, New York, who served as a caregiver for his wife Marcia during her cancer diagnosis, treatment and eventual death. As a longterm practitioner of Vipassana meditation, Joe found that his mindfulness meditation practice helped him through the difficult challenges of caregiving and grief and he has much wisdom to share with us from the perspective of a family caregiver.
Joe is also the author of the newly released book A Letter to My Wife, which follows his journey with late wife Marcia, from cancer diagnosis through death. His practice of mindfulness is explored throughout this heartfelt dedication and serves as the foundation for recommendations on coping with loss and healing. His story, which includes both practical advice and profound wisdom, is a real-life example of how powerful and guiding meditation can be during life's painful and challenging chapters.

What Joe learned about being a caregiver from accompanying Marcia through illness
His best advice for other family caregivers
