So, therefore, in memory of my late granddaughter Angelique Shar'dae Ladson, I dance to help me deal with my grief and sadness. It makes me feel, so, much better. I speak to others about my cancer experience that I, also, dealt with, during 2010, and about being a survivor, before my granddaughter got sick. I speak to others about the terrible lymphoma cancer that my granddaughter fought for (37) days, after being diagnosed, in October 2010. I, also, speak to people about many of my family members that died of various cancers. I speak to individuals and small groups when the subject comes up. When I speak to others, it makes me feel better. Talking about it is like therapy.
I love doing the various slides, line dances and swing dance. I, also, love coaching and consulting others, so far as these dances are concerned. Dance can make a world of difference in our everyday lives, because we experience all kinds of ups, downs, hardships, sorrow, pain and grief.
So, I say to you, “Dance and talk, even if the sickness or death happened recently, a short while back or years ago, and you have been carrying the grief and sadness in your heart". If you, personally, have been dealing with an illness that you were diagnosed with recently or a while back, contact us and tell us about it. I say to you "Dance and talk."
Contact us, even if you put it on paper or email us. Tell us about your grief and sadness experience. Make sure to, also, tell us about your dancing experience. If you created a new slide or line dance or is trying to learn one that you heard about, we are very excited to hear about it. Doing these things means that you are turning your grief and sadness into something positive and on the road to a more rewarding and happier life.
