Cultural Conversations: Permission to Thrive

Sunday, May 3, 2020

In "Permission to Thrive," Susan traces her extraordinary journey, which begins when her healthy fourteeen-year old daughter dies suddenly from a brain tumor, and the family's decision -- on the worst day of their lives -- to donate Laura's organs, saving the life of a women with whom the Millers would ultimately cultivate an exceptional relationship. This intensely personal story addresses the unnerving topics of death, illness, and trauma while conveying a hopeful message: life-changing tragedies might be impossible to predict or prevent, but it is the response to these adversities which influences the extent and likelihood of post-traumatic emotional growth. This memoir speaks to anyone who fears when that next bad event will occur and wonders how they will respond. This book reveals the human ability to grieve, survive, and eventually thrive.
