S7: Episode 5 Leaning into a hopeful future as a special needs parent with special guest Marcia Nathai- Balkissoon

Bringing Her Hope

Monday, August 30, 2021 - 57 minutes

You never know how one event can change your life forever. My guest this week on the Bringing Her Hope podcast is Marcia Nathai- Balkissoon.  Marcia's daughter, Emma, was born with a congenital heart issue and due to a medical mistake following open-heart surgery at only 8 months old, Emma was left severely brain-damaged. Marcia and her family found themselves in a new world: coming to terms with their new reality, isolation, endless healthcare appointments, and unplanned expenses, among many other new trials.
