ONCE UPON A GENE – EPISODE 110

Turkey Soup for the Soul and Stories About Rare Unicorns Who Show Up in Our Lives

In this special Thanksgiving episode, Tyra Skibington and Tracey Beckett share stories of rare unicorns— people who go above and beyond in the rare disease community.

Sam’s Day

A story of a Christmas tree farmer named Ted who makes it possible for kids to spend a day on the farm with their families, enjoying wheelchair accessible hayrides, hot chocolate, and choosing their special Christmas tree.

A Beautiful Gift

A friend offered a stay at her ski resort condo over the New Year holiday. It was a beautiful gift and was just what the family needed to slow down, recharge, heal and connect. 

Craig

When a family is blessed with a vehicle when they need it most, a chain of giving follows, bringing this story of generosity and kindness full circle.

A Lesson in Friendship

When a new girl moves into the neighborhood, her mother shows her the value and importance of being a good friend. 

Our Daughter Harper

A story of Dr. Harper, who went above and beyond when a couple received an in-utero diagnosis. She helped them through their early diagnosis with kindness, empathy and respect.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Surrounded by medical staff, two in particular go above and beyond and stand out among the rest. It’s the little things like good coffee and a special visit that make a hospital stay a little better for Jordan and her mom.

Darby’s Birthday

Every year, a Certified Education Assistant delivers a custom jacket to Darby on her birthday which has been modified to be easily worn. 

A New Bike
