Relentlessly Resilient

Brainstem tumor survivor Jodi Orgill Brown part 2: It is your choice to be “better” or “bitter”

In this second part of a two-part series featuring Jodi Orgil Brown’s inspirational story, she shares with listeners the wisdom she has learned along her decade-plus medical journey. As she continues to recover from brainstem tumor removal, three craniotomies, and multiple reconstructive surgeries to help with subsequent facial paralysis, she has learned that making and keeping stretch goals has been the key to her progress. And while some people in her situation have chosen to be bitter, she has chosen to be better! She now inspires others with her best-selling memoir and as a motivational speaker and coach. 

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.
