The Beautiful Side of Grief

At 28 most of us are thinking marriage, a home, perhaps children… for Rachel Engstrom it was about surviving the journey with her husband through leukemia, then loss. At 31 she was having to reboot her life without a map to show her the way. She never would have thought she would go from a widow alone in her house, crying, jobless husbandless, childless, to excited to talking on podcasts and being an advocate to say 'you're going to be okay'.
