Even in the midst of illness

How to experience a full and satisfying life, even in the midst of sickness, will be explored 7 p.m. CT Monday, April 16 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “How to Live Before You Die: Embracing Life to the Fullest,” features a filmed interview with Sasha Vukelja, who as a young girl escaped from communist Yugoslavia and emigrated to the United States.

Vukelja, now an oncologist, tells how she works with patients facing an uncertain future to find hope and a positive attitude.

“I tell people they have a terminal illness called life, and one day, it’s going to kill you,” Vukelja said. “If you live every day like it’s your last, one day you’re going to be right.”

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
