Fighting through more pain than usual Mike Berkson joins his G.I.M.P. Show Podcast co-host Tim Wambach in the Handicap This Productions studio to welcome a great guest. Some may know her thanks to her Sioux Falls TEDx talk “When Life Gives You Lemons.” Others may know her books Kendra’s Lemonade and Live Laugh Lemonade: A Journey of Choosing to Beat the Odds. Yes ladies and gentlemen the one and only Kendra Gottsleben join Mike and Tim today.
Kendra Gottsleben lives with the rare condition Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI. Rather than trying to sound that out in your head, use the acronym MPS. Kendra explains MPS’ exact level of rarity, what the heck the type VI means, and how the condition affects her daily life. Click play and get ready to learn!
Those familiar with Mike and Tim’s story as you listen you will start to draw some parallels. The more Kendra talks, the more she appears the ideal guest for The G.I.M.P. Show Podcast. She embodies many principles Mike and Tim promote in their Handicap This stage show. Like Kendra goes on to say “We all have gifts and talents.”
Unfortunately not everyone recognizes said gifts and talents. Tune in to hear how Kendra dealt with the doubters. You might just find her methods helpful and adopt them yourself!
Another topic which arises during Mike, Tim, and Kendra’s discussion involves social media’s power to unite. Kendra initially connected with Mike and Tim via social media. A platform like Twitter really puts you “one tweet away” from so many!
