Janet Trever of Arlington Heights
Janet Trever died on Friday, Jan. 15, 1999, in the same manner as she lived, savoring every last drop. She was 55 years old. The survivor of three separate cancers since the age of five, she learned the magic of turning life's misfortunes into personal transformation, as against the odds, she found abundance, joy and meaning where others might have found despair.
At age five, Janet survived a neuroblastoma, which necessitated the removal of her right eye. The prognosis at the time was that she was `90% terminal.' A year of radiation and an eye prosthesis followed, and Janet proved the prognosis wrong. She not only survived; she thrived. By the time she was in college, she had switched to her colorful trademark eye patches, a matching patch for each outfit. She turned facial disfigurement into stylish elegance, with her collection of hundreds of eyepatches--patterned, sequined, beaded, brocaded. She declared herself `a swan' and went on to marry a fraternal president, David Miller, at Denver University, where she received her undergraduate degree, and became a teacher.
She was told she would never have children, because of the effects of the radiation. Once again, she defied dire predictions, and gave birth first to Andrew, and then to Sarah, who have been steadfast lights in her life to the last moment.
At age 35, Janet was diagnosed with breast cancer, if she could live without an eye, she could live without a breast.
She continued to raise her children and go about her life, completing a divorce and a masters degree in counseling from South Dakota University. This was followed by doctoral work in counseling psychology at the University of Arizona, with an emphasis on issues of death and dying. A luminary among luminaries, Janet's professional life lead to a close relationship with family therapy pioneer Virginia Satir, and studies with death and dying specialist Elizabeth Kubler Ross. Her career included counseling, therapy, consulting, training and presenting at conferences all over the world.
At 47, Janet was found to have adenoidcystic carcinoma of the salivary gland. Surgery, neutron radiation, and many bouts of chemotherapy followed, leaving her body racked with side effects, but her spirit undaunted. Asshe stated in an article written for Coping Magazine in 1997, `I fill my life with a nutty sense of humor, adventures, speaking at national conferences, volunteering as executive director of the Yul Brynner Head and Neck Cancer Foundation.' A sustaining ingredient in Janet's life was the devotion of her large network of friends around the country and the globe. Her lifelong friend, Sue Culliton gave literally thousands of hours of time over the last eight years, driving Janet to all her medical appointments and treatments. Ano
