Alicia Coppola, actress, author, wife and mother of three reads and discusses her book, Gracefully Gone. Gracefully Gone is a decade long dialogue between her and her father, Matt as he lay dying from brain cancer, while she struggled to grow up within cancer’s murky shadow. It is a fusion of two journals; her father’s writings from his 1980 diagnosis until his 1983 remission and Alicia’s journal from 1989-1991 as she cared for him until his passing.
1 in every 3 college students grieving a loved one’s death or the diagnosis of a loved one’s terminal illness. Alicia understands the challenges college students face and helps to bring awareness to this neglected group of young adults and the challenges they face in the wake of a loved one’s end-of-life and ultimate demise.
