About the series

Stories of Hope is a free series of wellbeing interviews. They feature people who are living with, or caring for a family member facing illness or disability. We point to the fact that despite any changes in lifestyle or circumstances, our wellbeing is fully available. Within every story is a message of hope. 

Sharyn Di Ubaldo


Sharyn's eldest son James was born three months prematurely, suffered brain damage at birth and was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

She soon felt like her dream of having a healthy family was taken away from her but now sees things very differently.

Bill and Lisa Giruzzi


Lisa and Bill have been married for 25 years and live in Upstate New York. They bonded over a dream to have their lives make a difference. Little did they know, the challenges they would face when Bill suffered a brain bleed in April 2020 that nearly took his life. 

Marina Galan


Marina’s 83 year old mother has emphysema. She talks powerfully about the challenges and privilege of supporting her mother during end of life care.
