'The loss I have suffered will not decrease any more today, tomorrow or next year, I will just grow with it,' says Michelle.

In Part 2 of this two part episode (listen to Part 1), Michelle discusses grief with Stephanie following the loss of her husband, Sean, to young-onset bowel cancer, aged 36 in April 2021.

Michelle talks openly and honestly about the impact of losing Sean, her anticipatory grief and how Sean gave her permission to be happy and continue living.
