It's Not a Tumor: The Multitalented Grace Wethor

Today on the show, I welcome an extraordinary young woman —> Grace Wethor is a living unicorn of talent and intelligence. Guitarist. Pianist, Trapeze Artist, Figure Skater, Model, Author, TED Speaker — and 6-year survivor of an inoperable brain stem glioma that she was diagnosed with at 13 years old in 2015. Grace is the author of “You’re So Lucky” and a new docu-series called “You’re So Lucky: The Next Chapter.” She joins me to talk about what it’s like to have your whole life interrupted at such a young age, and we compare notes against her experiences in the 2010s vs. my eerily similar experiences in the 1990s. Spoiler Alert: We’ve come pretty far, but we’ve got a ways to go. Enjoy the show.
