Relentlessly Resilient

Brainstem tumor survivor Jodi Orgill Brown part 1: From fatigue to facial paralysis

Jodi Orgill Brown is an author, motivational speaker, wife, mother, and brainstem tumor survivor. She was living her white-picket-fence life until her fatigue and headaches turned out to be something much more sinister. Now after three craniotomies, facial paralysis, and multiple reconstructive surgeries she has become a best-selling writer and inspiration to those she meets. She joins our Relentlessly Resilient hosts to share her medical journey in the first part of this two-part special, and how a positive mindset can help you overcome debilitating circumstances. 

Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
