In this episode, Lance and Yvonne Heath talk about how to cope and prepare for the various types of grief that we may face in our lives. 

Yvonne is a registered nurse of 31 years and has worked throughout the U.S. and Canada. The greatest struggle that inspired her movement was when her older son spiraled into a drug addiction years ago. At 50 years old, Yvonne took a leap of faith and blazed a new trail to help foster a culture of change in the conversation of how to manage grief. 

Yvonne is now a renowned transformational keynote speaker, TV Host, and the author of Love Your Life to Death that showcases heartfelt stories of those who have been deeply impacted by loss. She interviews of professionals who deal with grief, death, and dying. She is also the Creator of the #IJustShowedUp movement.
