The Mary Mac Show | Grieving Children Podcast Series | Death of a Father | Line Brunet

In Episode 184, I speak with Podcast Maven Line Brunet of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada, who shares with us her father’s throat cancer diagnosis when she was 18 and his three-year battle before his death.

Line (pronounced Lynn) graciously discussed her colorful life growing up with her Dad, Lucien, a French Canadian who packed up the family when she was three, purchased a yellow school bus, took out most of the seats, added some of their furniture and drove to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, clear across the country from Ontario.

When Line was 18, her Dad was diagnosed with throat cancer after a lump appeared on his neck.

The next three years were spent working with alternative medicines in an effort to save his life.

Watch my conversation with Line below:

Our time together brought many lovely memories of a man who lived life to the fullest and brought great joy to Line’s life in the short time she had him with her.

We also spoke about her mother’s life and her devotion to Line and her son after her Dad’s death.

Much Love to you, Line!


Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:

If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!

For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.

Visit Julie’s EFT episodes on grief and she will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.

Here are some meditation music to help you rest.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.

I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.
