At any given time there are countless children spending extended periods of time in hospitals battling serious illnesses. For these children and their loved ones, this can be an incredibly draining, debilitating, isolating experience, but it doesn’t have to be. My special guest, colleague, and friend, Lisa Buksbaum, founded Soaring Words, a non-profit whose mission is “to inspire ill children and their families to take active roles in self-healing. Soaringwords is unique as it is the only organization to motivate ill children and families to “pay it forward” to help others. Studies show that when a child does something kind for another child it accelerates transformative healing.”

Lisa talks about her own journey, and we discuss post-traumatic growth in the context of the tragedies that Lisa has experienced and how they informed her uncovering of her own purpose, and how that led to her forming Soaringwords.
