Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the meaning of hope for Australian families living with coronary disease. Theoretical Framework: Parse's theory of human becoming is the framework for this study. The three principles of the theory emphasize the human processes of creating meaning in situations, living rhythmical patterns of relating, and moving beyond to new ways of living health. Health from the human becoming perspective, is the way one lives life and involves freely choosing within situations; it is a personal commitment to a lived value system. Quality of life is whatever the person says that it is. Sample: Ten persons (three women and seven men) ranging from 34 to 79 years of age participated in this study. All participants were Australian and were able to understand, read, and speak English and to focus on and describe their lived experience of hope. Method: Parse's phenomenological-hermeneutic method was used. This is a qualitative method that is composed of several processes: participant selection, dialogical engagement, extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation. Dialogical engagement began with the researcher's statement: "Tell me about the experience of hope in your life." Results: The lived experience of hope for these participants was anticipating possibilities amid anguish, while enduring with vitality in intimate affiliations. Conclusions: Hope for these participants, was lived by connecting with important others while at the same time being alone in the struggle to find meaning in challenging life experiences. Recommendations for future research will be discussed.
