43: Down Syndrome: Three Moms Making a Difference

October 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Down Syndrome: three moms (Michelle, Leslie, and Dori) talk with Meredith about their kiddos, families and "law syndrome." The biggest take away from this episode for me was the fact that Down Syndrome individuals are REALLY just like us... truly. Listen more to these women tell their stories---such a great episode. Approximately one in every 700 babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome, making Down syndrome the most common chromosomal condition. At NDSS you'll find an introduction to Down syndrome and an overview of related facts, myths and truths and our preferred language guide.

Law Syndrome:
Law Syndrome affects 100% of people with Down syndrome.  It’s a series of antiquated laws that impede the pursuit of a career or living independently without risking Medicaid benefits. Help us fix the law and end #LawSyndrome

42: Rob Jones: Double-Amputee & a Month of Marathons

October 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Rob Jones: Double-Amputee Marine is Training to Run 31 Marathons in 31 Days.

"I grew up on a farm in the small town of Lovettsville, Virginia. I graduated from Loudoun Valley High School in 2003, and from Virginia Tech in 2007.  In my junior year at Virginia Tech, I joined the Marine Corps Reserve as a combat engineer at Bravo Company, 4th Combat Engineer Battalion in Roanoke, VA. In the Marine Corps, combat engineers are responsible for a multitude of disciplines but the primary role that I and my fellow combat engineers undertook was the use of explosives, and the detection of buried IEDs and weapons caches. 

"I deployed to Habbaniyah, Iraq in 2008, and again to Delaram/Sangin, Afghanistan in 2010. During my deployment to Afghanistan while operating as a part of a push into Taliban territory, I was tasked with clearing an area with a high likelihood of containing an IED. It was in this capacity that I was wounded in action by a land mine. The injury resulted in a left knee dis-articulation and a right above knee amputation of my legs. 

"I was taken to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD for the initial phases of my recovery, which consisted primarily of healing and closing my wounds. I was then transferred to Walter Reed Army Medical Center for the remainder of my rehabilitation. At Walter Reed I was fitted with prosthetics, and worked very hard to learn how to walk with two bionic knees. I also used the time to relearn how to do other things with my new challenge including riding a bicycle, running, and rowing. I took naturally to rowing, and since I am always in search of a challenge that I can use to become better, I decided to train for the 2012 Paralympics.

"After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in December, 2011, I immediately moved to Florida to train with my rowing partner, Oksana. We spent five months there, and during that time period won the trunk and arms mixed double sculls trial race held by USRowing to become the USRowing national team for our boat class, and also won the Final Paralympic Qualification Regatta in Belgrade to qualify for the Paralympics. We then moved to Charlottesville, Virginia to continue training until the Paralympics in September, 2012. Our hard work paid off for us as we brought home a bronze medal in our event. I continued in the sport of rowing through the 2013 season, where my partner and I placed 4th in the 2013 World Rowing Championships.  

"On October 14, 2013 I began a solo supported bike ride across America which started in Bar Harbor, Maine, and ended in Camp Pendleton, California.  The ride was 5,180 miles long and completed on April 13, 2014, a total of 181 days after it began.  Over the course of the ride, along with my team, I raised $126,000 for the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, and Ride 2 Recovery, three charities which aid wounded veterans.

"Between Fall 2014, and Summer 2016, I trained in the sport of triathlon with the intention to compete in the 2016 Paralympic Games.  I saw considerable personal improvement, but was unable to qualify.

"Currently I am planning to complete a month long back to back marathon challenge in which I will run 31 marathons in 31 days in 31 different major cities, once again raising awareness and funds for wounded veteran charities.

41: Ally Faber: Treacher Collins Syndrome & Nolan

October 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Ally Faber is the mom to Nolan, who has a rare genetic syndrome known as Treacher Collins. This was an incredibly positive, uplifting and heart-warming episode.

Ally writes, "Nolan is the best thing to have ever happened to our family and he's transformed the way I view life. I'm a married, vegan Oregon momma of TWO boys who decided to embark on a minimalism journey this calendar year for financial freedom, a healthier emotional state and a less wasteful and more conscious life as a consumer. I long to own less so that we can do more as a family."

38: Louise Green: Big Fit Girl

September 14, 2017
00:0000:00

Fit. Fat. Thin. Plus-size. Body Positive. Diet-Culture. Fat Activism. What IS all this? Why is "food" such a volatile topic? Meredith and the amazing Louise Green --- two "big fit girls" talk about fitness, food, weight, stigma, triathlon and more.

In her book Big Fit Girl, Louise Green describes how the fitness industry fails to meet the needs of plus-size women and thus prevents them from improving their health and fitness. By telling her own story of how she stopped dieting, got off the couch, and unleashed her inner athlete—as well as showcasing similar stories from other women—Green inspires other plus-size women to do the same.

Green also provides concrete advice, based on the latest research, about how to get started, how to establish a support team, how to choose an activity, what kind of clothing and gear work best for the plus-size athlete, how to set goals, and how to improve one’s relationship with food. And she stresses the importance of paying it forward—for it is only by seeing plus-size women in leadership roles that other plus-size women will be motivated to stop trying to lose weight and get fit instead.

34: John Kim: The Angry Therapist

August 25, 2017
00:0000:00

"My F*cking Feelings?" As he was going through an expired relationship, John Kim created a blog on Tumblr and titled his first post “My F*cking Feelings”. He named his blog The Angry Therapist and started to document his journey post divorce.

Even though he was a licensed therapist, John chose not to present himself that way. He wore t-shirts and jeans. He preferred the language of “me too” as opposed to “you should”. He blogged about his short comings, revelations, and his views on relationships, the self help business, and the world. He found CrossFit, bought a motorcycle, and started coaching people in unconventional ways.

The Angry Therapist has become greater than just John Kim. Today, it is a place to find support no matter where you are or what you’re going through. It’s a place where definitions of our common human struggles are based largely on experiencing life and allowing it to break and heal us, which is very different than labels applied by learning about suffering in text books. It is a growing team of therapists and life coaches all over the world- practicing transparency, living as the truest versions of themselves, continually growing, and in this process becoming Catalysts. It is also a school, teaching this new way of helping others and supporting them in that journey. It is a thriving community unlike any other. The Angry Therapist is a lifestyle.
