Early in the year, Keri Wiginton, a health writer for WebMD, reached out to me. She wanted to tell the story of how someone with heart failure made lifestyle changes to help manage their condition. Who better than the Heart of a Giant himself 😉? After a quick phone call, we agreed that I was a good fit, and here is the excellent piece that was produced. Check it out!
Join us as Bouba speaks with Jazmine and Tawana about Evelyn Charrisse, the ladies’ mother and sister-in-law. Unfortunately, Evelyn, also known as “Charrisse,” passed away, but this episode will help you understand the highs and lows of caring for someone with heart disease. Episode 4 – Despite sharing tales of emergency hospital visits, Jazmine and Tawana never forget to mention how determined Charrisse was to make the most of life. Charrisse had a will to enjoy life. Everyone could feel that energy. Bouba felt the same way when meeting Charrisse for the first time. He appreciated her positive energy and independence. Everyone shares the lessons they learned from witnessing Charrisse live a full life in this conversation.
