Lifetree topic: Pursuing a Satisfying Life

How to experience a full and satisfying life, even in the midst of sickness, will be explored at Lifetree Cafe on Tuesday, April 17th at noon and 7pm.

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 says. “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. Lifetree Cafe is located at Cana, 18 S Third Street, Fort Dodge.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
