What Up, Get Up Nation®? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently on Get Up Nation ® social media, I had the honor of meeting a person who has experienced tremendous adversity in her life named Tiffany Annette Young. She is a pediatric cancer survivor and domestic violence survivor. Tiffany also survived cancer as an adult. Due to the effects of retinoblastoma cancer and its treatment at a young age while her family served in the United States Armed Forces in Germany, she was frequently viewed as different. After listening to how Tiffany endured and persevered through ridicule, bullying, illness, post-traumatic stress, and moments where she considered taking her own life, I am honored she joined me on the podcast to share her journey. She shares how she has committed herself to using her experiences of adversity to empower others. She shares how she takes great satisfaction and a depth of gratitude from moments where the gift of her life has been able to influence the lives of others toward their fulfillment. She is a master of creating big impact though “little” acts because of how she sees. Although cancer threatened to rob her of her vision as an infant, she can see with clarity the depth and brilliance of everyone around her regardless of their societal stature. She is truly making her life count and giving Get Up Nation a gift that helps us all to see how we can live a life of truly positive impact. It is with great honor that I share with all of you Episode 53 of the Get Up Nation Podcast.
