In this episode of “Surviving & Thriving,” meet a woman who lost more than 300 pounds — without surgery — and a woman who was on her deathbed until a stranger stepped in to help from across the country.
For the second consecutive year, “Surviving & Thriving,” presented by Florida Hospital and airing on WKMG Local 6, has been nominated for an EMMY® Award.
For the last year, reporter Jessica Sanchez has been battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma. In a candid interview, she reveals just how challenging her fight has been and why sometimes she wondered: why can’t I bounce back like Wendy Chioji?
For the second season of Surviving & Thriving, Bolder Broadcasting is proud to announce a new multi-year, multi-platform partnership with Florida Hospital to share the stories of those who are surviving life’s toughest struggles.
Hosted by Marc Middleton, Bill Shafer, Wendy Chioji and Secily Wilson, this programming partnership brings together some of the most well-known storytellers and supports WKMG’s mission to offer hope, inspiration and possibility to Central Florida.
