A podcast about traveling the special needs road and discovering the hidden gems and unique finds of a place you didn't think you would be. We share how families are doing amazing things as a result of a diagnosis, and give you a glimpse into the realities of raising children with differing needs.

Feb 24, 2021

In celebration of International SCN2A Awareness Day on February 24th, we explore how SCN2A, a rare genetic disease, impacts each child. You’ll hear from four moms with four very different children. They will show us what life has looked like for them since their diagnosis and what they are doing as a result of knowing the genetic cause for their children’s medical conditions. 

A BIG thank you to the four parents who shared their voices and stories for this episode.

  • Katie Loosley 
  • Nikki Beasley
  • Jenna Puteri
  • Kris Ray
