‘Your Life After Trauma’ Radio: Transforming Grief: A Cancer Spouse Turns Sadness Into Community with the Launch of Ali’s Alliance

Listen live to Your Life After Trauma

Grief can lead to numbness and inertia, two of the things that block us from moving forward. What we learn from grief counseling and others’ examples of moving ahead is that taking action helps put us back in touch with life in a meaningful way. Add to that the beauty of giving back and helping others and you have a terrific recipe for learning how to process grief and move on.

My guests this week:

Ali's Alliance - Cancer Support and Resources
David J Cowan Sr.
 has been in Florida 14 years and a resident of Jupiter for the past 12. Born in Upstate New York, David grew up mainly in North Carolina and Colorado. David earned an Honorable Discharge from the United States Marine Corps 1979 and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado in 1988. Since moving to Florida he has been a scuba diving instructor, a dive travel guide and underwater videographer. After completing Film School in 2009 David launched his video production company, Palm Beach Video, serving small to medium sized businesses throughout the South East.

In January of 2010 David’s lovely wife Alison was diagnosed with Mucosal Melanoma, a very rare internal variation of the deadly skin cancer, and in December of 2010 Alison passed after a courageous eleven month battle. The shock of Alison’s passing and the difficulty of finding resources during the battle formed the genesis of Ali’s Alliance, a Florida Non-Profit dedicated to the creation and maintenance of a geographically searchable online database of resources to support cancer survivors, family members and caregivers.
