What is Surviving & Thriving?
Struggle is a universal human experience. Life will knock us down and count us out if we allow it. Surviving & Thriving is a program filled with hope, inspiration and possibility. A program with real stories about real people who refused to give in when confronted with the kinds of challenges that nearly every family faces. From cancer to cardiac disease; the loss of a spouse to the loss of a job, Surviving and Thriving is about standing up and fighting for all that life has to offer and in some cases for life itself. These battles are rarely fought alone. We all need inspiration from the examples of others who have not only survived but thrived in the aftermath of hardship. Surviving & Thriving provides those examples.
Surviving and Thriving is brought to you by Growing Bolder in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando and WKMG Local 6.
