2015-1003 Empathy

There are very few videos on Facebook I have watched more than once. The following video, which I noticed on the Facebook site To Be Inspired, is definitely worth watching more than once.

Thanks to Cleveland Clinic and all the people who made the video, To Be Inspired for posting the video, YouTube for hosting the video; Facebook for enabling To Be Inspired, Beyond Adversity, and me to share the video; and all the people who, directly or indirectly made it possible for me to include the picture, video, and text in this post.


Even after brain surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments to eradicate his brain cancer, Scott continued to work; continued to study; and earned professional certifications from the Project Management Institute, American Society of Quality, and Stanford University School of Professional Development. How were all of these achievements possible at a time when Scott was struggling with the hurdles of brain injury? The answers are in this blog.

    Definitely empathy. Funny, but I could relate to A LOT of these people’s struggles by being a single parent. Sure glad I didn’t pull the plug first or I’d’ve kicked myself silly!

      Lois, I can relate too because I have had two brain surgeries, listened to doctor tell me there is a good chance I will dies, and watched my mom cry as a surgeon told her I may never be able to think or walk again. We really need more empathy in the world. ~ Scott
