"Can I Say I'm a Medical Miracle?" - My 90-Year-Old Nana - MS Awareness
April 1, 2022
The most important person in my life is finally on my podcast! To celebrate March as MS Awareness Month (just a hair late), I've finally edited what has been 6 different phone calls with my Nana into one podcast episode that really shows off just how much life you can pack into 90 years. I call her every Sunday, but honestly, these calls where she had to tell her own life stories were so illuminating for me that I feel like I've been given a gift I didn't know was already there. Listen to her recount her life-long battle with MS. In addition, we also tackle semi-random topics like the transition from radio to black & white TV, my grandfather's rejection of Alexander Graham Bell, and even how the Boston Strangler made it harder for my Nana to collect donations for the MS organization she founded with her friend. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do (which, let's be honest, isn't possible). Thanks, Nana!
I'm reserving this spot for a deserving MS charity but in my efforts to get this out on time, I wanted to spend a bit more time doing some research before putting it in the show notes. In the meantime, if you have any older relatives, reach out to them and let them know you think about them, thanks!
