Upon becoming acutely or chronically ill, a person enters a phase of life unlike any other, often without much preparation. The same holds true when one becomes incapacitated, perhaps through an accident or a disability, and certainly when one learns that death is on its way. Willowgreen's books, eBooks, audio books, CDs and DVDs help people deal with such distressing times.
