When Amber Jackson met her husband Tim, she describes it, “He came across my sky and lit it up, and now he’s gone just as quickly.”
Amber and Tim were both nurses at the same hospital, and very quickly realized they were soulmates and meant to be together. Within five years they got married and had two beautiful kids.
Then it all came crashing down. “When he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, I knew we had to make the most of every moment,” said Amber. From that moment on they did all they could to treat the cancer, and documented every moment–moments she now shares on social media.
Amber shares her story of resilience, caring for 4 small children, one of whom has special needs, and navigating being single while carrying space as a young widow.
Hear her remarkable story only on The Game On Glio Podcast.
We will also be discussing mental health as part of our mental health awareness campaign. Tune in anywhere podcasts are played.
