Temple of the Soul

This video is from ABC’s news show 20/20 and appeared in April of 1994 and is reposted here with permission. This video of Sandi Gold’s project “The Temple of the Soul” was in the top three most popular segments on 20/20 watched that year.

After being told by five neurologists that I was going to die within a year back in 1986 I , Sandi Gold, found help at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts from the late Dr. Ray Kjellberg who pioneered the use of the cyclotron machine for medical purposes, using what is now called Proton Beam Therapy for those who had no other options. To express my appreciation of life and to let other people know this option is available to them should they ever need it, I painted and erased a large mural in the Westerly Public Library to express what I’d learned.

It’s not how long we live but the depth of our appreciation of life that’s important; that we must live in the present and simply be.”
