While fighting to keep both body and mind as intact as possible during his 15-year struggle with cancer, Richard Tate eventually began to focus most keenly on the spiritual aspects of departing this life: How to let go of those he cherished, how to live more fully the time he had left, and how to leave behind something that might be of value.
He found his voice in poetry, which he shared with friends and loved ones during the last few years of his life. Already There: Reflections on Living While Dying is a compilation of those poems. It was his desire that this work might provide some comfort, recognition, and even hope, for others.
Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to support cancer research at the Sarah Cannon Research Institute in Nashville, Tennessee.
