#190: It's Go Time with Ali Christian

Do you think if you were diagnosed with cancer that you’d think things like “This is a blessing” or “I was chosen for this mission!“? I know that I would NOT be that insightful. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Ali Christian, a wife, mom and business owner born and raised in upstate New York. She was recently diagnosed with stage four cancer, uprooted her family from NY and moved to CA to get treatment. She and her husband are passionate about sharing the story God is writing for them with full transparency & (attempted) full surrender. She shares with us what it looks like when your life stops and you begin a new life as a full-time cancer fighter. She is the definition of a Mom Struggling Well and I am so pleased that she came to share her joy with all of us.
