It’s a story practically out of a Hollywood script: One woman’s determination to help her husband beat a deadly disease called multiple myeloma. Through furious determination and love for her husband, Kathleen Bond has helped her mate of more than two decades overcome the odds and battle this disease. Join Olga Villaverde as she meets with this amazing woman and is also joined by very special patient advocate, Fatima Scipione, Senior Director for Patient Advocacy at Takeda Oncology.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
