In this episode, you'll meet Shannon Conn. Shannon began a non profit organization after the passing of her daughter Kristina Conn. Kristina was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at 6 weeks old and lost her battle with CF on October 3, 2015. Kristina was 21 years-old. She had the most amazing personality. Her laugh was contagious. She lived life each day as if it were her last. She smiled through the pain and wanted to be treated "normally" even though she was living with a terminal illness. She loved having a positive impact in her local community, giving back to homeless individuals and local families in need at Christmas, which was her FAVORITE holiday, and fundraising for CF in hopes of finding a cure.
Shannon felt compelled to keep Kristina's memory alive by giving back to anyone in need. The organization was created to have a direct impact in the families lives that are struggling. Regardless of the struggle, the Kristina Conn Foundation is here to help! You can find out more information by visiting:
Shannon opens up about what it's like to grieve the loss of a child and how she was able to pick herself up. She continued moving forward by keeping Kristina’s mission alive. This is an emotional episode with hope for what is yet to come. We hope you enjoy!
