Show Notes

Jessica Jones has faced a chronic illness most of her life, but that didn’t prepare her for her son’s rare heart disease. Becky Barnes lost her sister to lymphoma and has had more than her share of health problems. Both women have transformed their own experience into commitments to help others in their rural communities in Indiana and Kentucky. Jessica is working to address food insecurity during the pandemic, while Rebecca helps people understand and access health care benefits. Both women speak powerfully to impact that one person can have in changing a community.
