Why are we afraid or uncomfortable when someone we love has cancer? We don’t know how this horror movie is going to end – either for us or for our loved one. No matter how rich or poor, happy or sad we are, cancer can happen to any of us. Through her personal experiences, Ilonka Meier shares six powerful ideas to help people through this very difficult and traumatic time. After a career in the TV and movie business in Hamburg and Munich, Ilonka Meier shifted genres and became an international educator. She uses her skills and own experience to help people to cope with cancer.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
