Reconnect With Mike and Celebrate One Year of Freedom Post-HSCT Warriors (Ep. 98)

HSCT: January 17, 2022
Superpower: acceptance and grace

Where does kindness hit you? To what extent do you seek grace? How well do you find acceptance?

We first met Mike in Season 7, shortly after he found out about HSCT. After battling with insurance and seeking HSCT at different clinics in the United States, Mike considered a variety of factors in his decision to pursue treatment in Monterrey, Mexico. As Mike works to support physical improvements despite spasticity post-transplant and a battle with COVID, he is finding room for his superpowers of acceptance and grace. Tune in to learn more about the ‘hiccups’ that Mike encountered and their resolution, as well as considerations for family and recovery.
