Today’s guests discuss how writing can be used to heal and to help.
Kim Green’s debut novel, hallucination, sees her main character Morgan experiencing some of Kim’s own challenges of living with the auto-immune disease, Lupus, and how it became a journey of self-discovery. Dan Gennari, entrepreneur and cancer survivor, created the CUREganizer after battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. His book helps fellow cancer combatants manage appointments, insurance communication, lab results, task lists and more with plenty of inspiration and hope. Echo Garrett co-authored My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change. This mini-memoir of Sam Bracken, her co-author, shares his journey of abuse, homelessness and abandonment to becoming a successful college athlete and then leader in business. Echo now leads a non-profit called the Orange Duffel Bag Foundation, which teaches the book’s transformational change principles to at-risk youth ages 12-24. Join guest host Vanessa Lowry as she talks with these inspirational authors.
