Rosaria’s son, Brody, was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma when he was only 23 months old. He suffered through numerous scans, infusions, and more before he lost his battle at the age of 3 in 2015. During his fight, she felt lost and had difficulty connecting to therapists who did not fully understand her situation. She created Living With Scanxiety: Cancer Podcast, so you can connect with people who understand you — people who understand the anxiety and heartache. Rosaria is a MSW student at Simmons University in Boston, MA with an expected graduation date in 2022. Prior to this she achieved a Masters of Arts In Teaching. She taught high school history to students with special needs for 10 years.
Season 2 Episode 8: Join me at the mic with CEO of Campaign One At A Time. We chat about the childhood cancer community in regards to this truly organic-based dream-making non-profit. Yes, they grant wishes, but they do so much more. But what is special about this non-profit is not only what inspired Brodi Nicolas to start it but also the relationship the organization maintains with each child. Please tune in to find out more about this new-ish organization and how awesome their CEO is in relationship to his inspiration, motivation, and more. For Show Notes and More
Season 2 Episode 006: Join me at the mic with author and cancer survivor Christine Handy. This episode is like nothing we’ve done before on Living With Scanxiety: Cancer Podcast. Christine conveys the emotional aspects of her journey as a warrior and how it affected her and her children. While this gives us a glimpse into the world we so badly wish we could have, taking cancer away from our child, the take away based on her feelings is what I would imagine everyone’s to be, listen and find out why.For Show Notes and More
Season 2 Episode 007: Part II with Christine Handy. She discusses all aspects of courage as she joins me at the mic for this episode. Again, as seen on NBC, Fox News, Fox News Radio, and more, she is a motivational speaker following her journey as a warrior. Join me in this episode to discuss an important topic she covers, often, within her speeches, and that is courage. She dives deep into how it is like a 'muscle' and how to gain it so we can continue this journey as caregivers for our children battling cancer.For Show Notes and More
