The Complex Nature of Grief: Kim MacNeill shares about losing her son to cancer and how the hole remains

August 6, 2021

My dear friend Kim MacNeill joins me today for a candid conversation about grief. As fellow hockey moms we share the love of hockey as our boys have played the sport. 8 years ago she lost her son Ross to a brain tumor. 

I often have spoken with Kim about how I feel I have lost my daughter in a similar way albeit she is still alive, to this awful disorder of anorexia and OCD. Today the conversation is candid and raw and real. You will learn why mentioning the name of someone who has died to that loved on can be a gift. 

I reference the podcast interview I did with with Claudia about grief. You will find it here.  Grief: A way of showing how much you have loved.


Kim has gone on to found the R33M Foundation: the Ross L MacNeill Foundation to end pediatric brain cancer. Her work to bring awareness and raise funds for research is tireless. We will not forget Ross and the impact he had on the lives he touched. 

If you are grieving, find support. There are many who will support you when you ask for her. It is deep and real and something that remains and yet we all need to tend the garden around the hole that remains.
