TORONTO, ON., January 26, 2020 -- What makes a person resilient and what can we learn from them?
Toronto resident Janet Fanaki started the podcast RESILIENT PEOPLE to find out.
In February 2020 she lost her 51 year old husband Adam to glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain cancer. During his illness, she began blogging her conversations with regular people who are admired for their resilience to inspire others with their stories.
Fanaki’s guests live around the world and have overcome a major life challenge and then created something to help others be resilient too.
Some of her guests have included: Marnie Hill who lost her son-in-law and wrote a children’s book to help discuss grief; Jason Fiorotto who lost his wife to breast cancer and started a fundraiser to bring comfort to cancer patients; and Elly Gotz who survived the Holocaust and speaks to thousands of students a year on the power of love over hate.
Each conversation offers simple takeaways for listeners.
“I’m doing this for the people who I met on my own journey who said that they could never do it,” says Janet Fanaki. “The truth is, you don’t know what you’re capable of doing until you HAVE to do it.”
