Baby Steps was released in 2017 as a resource for families who have newly learned of any type of illness or even terminal diagnosis. My wife and I found ourselves a very challenging situation when our 16- month-old son Terrell was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. We had a second experience when I was diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer in 2017. Emotional support resources were and remain very limited to assist families, so I created one.
We are now providing a resource/guide to handling this life-changing transition. Even though many days were a complete blur, my wife and I have taken the time to recall those first 10 days and share the experience in the book.
Our goal is to have Baby Steps will be placed in the hands of the families who find themselves grappling with this unimaginable devastation. We are endeavoring to get the book placed in more Hospitals, Doctors’ Offices, Oncology Clinics, and Treatment Centers. We believe this resource will provide solid direction for the coming days.
Consider purchasing this resource, if not for you for someone else. You never know who you may meet that may need this resource. https://squareup.com/store/HintonCaresFoundation
Tyrus Hinton has been providing emotional support to families for the last decade. His approach to assist families with the healing process after any terminal diagnosis has proven to be effective. His understanding of the many transitions a family must work through has been most helpful. He has experienced terminal diagnosis of one of his children and survived a cancer diagnosis of his own. Tyrus along with his family continue to visit families in hospitals throughout the east coast through Hinton Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization which provided emotional support to families battling newly diagnosed terminal illnesses. Each family is sure to receive some uplifting words and a care package to make their hospital stay a little more comforting.
