When someone who is struggling, emotional and crying, speaks to me and sees that I had the same exact surgery, they have that glimmer of hope they can live that same life themselves. Then they’re not scared to have a test, or ask questions and receive referrals. Sharing stories validates a person’s experience. What I’ve received from helping (people), you can’t put a price on that. There’s no price for making someone feel hopeful.
