Breathing Wind is a community of like-minded peers who were the first of their peers to have a parent die, and want to help others navigate this unique loss. Every other week, Sarah Davis, along with guest co-hosts, holds interviews with experts and peers on topics related to grief, parent loss, change, and healing.
Without a Fight
“I hoped that it would change me. I hoped that I would be able to overcome my resentments. That I would be able to overcome old history. I hoped that I would be able to be present for her, but I really didn't know if I could.”

"May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
Advocate and Caregiver
“I always wanted to advocate for black women, and gynecological cancers, because it can look a little different for us.”
In this episode, Kandis Draw and I have a conversation about her caregiving and cancer advocacy. She lost her mom to ovarian cancer in 2014 and since then, has been advocating for ovarian cancer awareness.
“The feeling is real, but the truth of it is not...These things change over time.”

“And I could see the humanity in his eyes [saying], ‘Hey, remember, I'm a human, please hang out with me.’”

Staying in: Caregiving with Presence
“I was the bottom line. And I did a ton because that's how it works when you live with and love someone who's so ill. But I was supported. We were in it as a unit.”
- Cheryl Jones
