This chapter discusses the possible gain or benefit of losing a loved one. It describes the case of Benjamin, the father of a terminally ill four-year-old child, who realized that because of his son's condition he had learned to fight for him. The chapter explains that with every situation comes a price and the possibility of a benefit, and that while the price remain fixed, the benefit is optional.

Keywords:   gain, benefit, terminally ill, son, father, price
