Supporting a family who has a child with a serious illness is not a one-size-fits-all type of situation. We all cope with these challenges differently, says Jenny, so it's important to take cues from the family on how they would like people to help and be involved.

I was reminded on this past Father's Day that no one will live forever here on earth. There will indeed come a time when we will all pass away. The importance and significance of this moment is that I am yet alive.

When I got married in 2012, my wife and I wrote our own vows. It is the vogue thing to do these days. What I soon learned is that the writing of one's vows can be intimidating and extremely personal.

Everyone Can Be a Philanthropist!

I doubt my parents had ever heard of the word philanthropy. Yet, there they were fully immersed in a lifetime of philanthropic activities, sharing their time, talents and meager financial resources with the community of which they were an integral part.
