About This Episode
Just hours before Mother’s Day, host Mitch Albom and his wife attended the 2023 ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation Gala, in honor of Chad Carr and Michael Mosier, two children who lost their lives far too soon from the same pediatric brain cancer that took the life of the Albom’s beloved daughter, Chika. Held on the eve before Mother’s Day, it was a reminder of just what a bittersweet holiday this is for many. For those who have lost their mothers, for those who have lost their children, and for those who never had children and mourn those losses every year. Mitch discusses the event, the deep feelings surrounding Mother’s Day, and shares an update on the children of his orphanage in Haiti. If Mother’s Day teaches us anything, it’s to celebrate your mothers while they are here, and love your children every day.
