Flyer text: Dale Murrish will speak about his experiences with brain cancer, diagnosed in 2003, and the clinical depression which followed it.

The best advice we got was from a fellow GM engineer who had the same kind of brain tumor five years before: hit the cancer with all the tools in your arsenal: conventional medicine, alternative medicine, spiritual, diet, exercise, music etc.

Dale is grateful to God for another 11 years of life, and for the support he got from his family, friends & GM coworkers. Later he fought the depression with a slightly different set of tools. His presentation will deal with the sovereignty of God in suffering, grief and other painful circumstances of life.

Each area of resources has its strengths and limitations, and it’s up to the individual and his/her patient advocate to navigate through the many available options. This is a serious topic, but people should come away encouraged.
