Now in its third season, “Surviving & Thriving” is our Emmy-nominated show that shines a spotlight on those who show us what’s possible in the face of hardships. Meet some of the men and women who are proving that when life knocks us down, having real hope can make all the difference in the world.
Just surviving Stage 4 lung cancer would be enough for some, but John Casterline has a plan to make a difference. He’s setting out on a 2,650-mile backpacking trek to raise money and awareness for one of the deadliest forms of cancer.
“Throw whatever you want to throw at me — I’m planning on beating it.” That’s the message from all of this week’s guests, including a Stage 4 lung cancer survivor and the founder of an amazing tribute to aviation.
