If you landed on this page via www.livethelifebetween.com, welcome. You are in the right place.
While we work on the formal The Life Between website, this blog, the one that I started back in May of 2015 when I received my cancer diagnosis, will be a temporary place holder.
If you want to begin your journey with The Life Between by learning more about my story, the best way to do it is to start at the very beginning, my first post, which you can find here: The Beginning
Navigating through the story in chronological order isn't always easy on Blogger because of the layout, but if you work your way through the entries, week by week, month by month, it will unfold for you exactly as it unfolded for me.
I have not gone back and edited any of my posts. I want to keep them as raw and as genuine as possible (even though the writer in me would love to go back and polish it all up), so the posts remain today exactly as they were written at the time, and reflect my "in the moment" thoughts and experience.
[UPDATE: I now have most of this blog converted to a PDF, which is much easier to read. If you would like a copy of it, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.]
Additionally, if you like to see the video that Nebraska Medicine made about my story, you can find it here:

If you are looking for more information about who we are and what we provide, keep reading.
The mission of The Life Between is to provide education, support services, and counseling to those living with and/or confronting cancer, encouraging them to live their best lives in the difficult moments that arise when confronting a potentially life threatening illness.
When faced with an upcoming test result, surgery, or appointment, it is easy to fixate so much on the future event that we often overlook all of the life moments that lie between the present moment and that future event.
Not only does this future-fixated thinking distract and rob us of precious time, but we often fill this time with thoughts of worst case scenarios, which are rooted more in fear than in probability. While this fear is often justified, it does little to improve our life, our mental and emotional outlook, or our ability to appreciate the life right in front of us.
To fulfill our mission of reaching as many people as possible, we provide a number of different services, including educational material, online group discussions, individual and group talks and events, and individual and group counseling sessions.
We respect the philosophical and religious beliefs of all people. We believe that regardless of belief system, we all possess the ability to take ownership and control of our inner life, and by doing so, empower ourselves to make the decisions that serve us best.
In 2015, Tim Sinnett was working as a trainer, coach, and corporate wellness program director when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in his abdominal cavity. To go from "very fit and healthy" one moment to "cancer patient" the next moment was quite a shock, but being a life-long student of philosophy, psychology, and hypnotherapy, Tim committed himself to being as positive and as present as possible.
After receiving many praises for his blog, Race Sherpa Rises, which detailed his cancer experience, Tim decided to use his professional skills and personal experience to help others going through similar circumstances.
Tim is a trainer, coach, certified hypnotherapist and registered psychotherapist. He lives in Boulder, CO, with his rock star wife, Rose, and adorable daughter, Taylor.
