The Farewell Tour

· Sold by Simon and Schuster

About this ebook

When her father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Jessica Cording’s family turned their lives upside down to care for him during what he coined his “Farewell Tour”—a nod to his career in the music business. But when your loved ones need you most, who’s taking care of the caregivers?

Through the lens of this heartbreaking and intimate journey, Cording offers a funny, heartwarming, and unique approach to end-of-life care or caring for someone with ongoing needs. She seamlessly blends her own expertise as a dietitian and health coach with humor and personal anecdotes while featuring interviews from other wellness professionals, world-renowned musicians, and music industry professionals. The book includes a playlist based off of songs Cording and her father were each listening to during his Farewell Tour, with suggested listening for each chapter. Cording reminds you it’s okay to laugh, it’s okay to date (if you want to), and it’s imperative to take care of yourself along the way.

Whether you’re feeling burned out or isolated, whether dealing with terminal illness or ongoing needs, The Farewell Tour is an invaluable guide to navigating the burdens of caregiving that often go unspoken.
