The seats have been swapped and roles reversed for this special episode. Guest host, Erica Frances from WKRN News 2, joins the show to interview show host, Patrick Custer, about his journey fighting for his life through brain tumor diagnosis, surgeries, and subsequent medical complications. This is a story of hope, perseverance and resilience that will resonate with anyone needing encouragement – or just wanting to hear a bizarre story!
Through December, Rooted Recovery Stories is be collaborating with Nashville Neurosurgery Associates to highlight stories of survivors from life-altering neurosurgical disorders. The holidays can be difficult for people suffering with adversity, especially acute medical conditions. To someone fighting these battles, it can feel like the whole world is passing by as other people remain so hyper-focused on crossing off to-do lists and completing obligations. Our goal this December is to bring visibility to some of these issues and help those struggling to feel seen!
