Mom Loses 2 Babies, Survives Cancer, Moves to Haiti
June 1, 2010 Leave a comment
When I launched Passion in Action TV a few weeks ago, my goal was to highlight people who are impacting others’ lives by living their passion. The following story is a perfect example of two courageous people who have turned their tragedy into triumph and their pain into a passionate pursuit.
The last 4 years have been incredibly tumultuous for Adam and Kara Cole. She survived the rare cancer choriocarcinoma and lost 2 babies, the most recently only a few short months ago. Their response to their recent tragedy was not to crawl in a hole somewhere and marinate in their pain. Instead they decided to move to Haiti to help the post-earthquake recovery effort by investing in people who have experienced their own tragedies. Check out the CNN iReport video…
One’s life purpose is often discovered in the midst of great suffering. After watching the video and reading the story, it would be hard for me to conjure an acceptable excuse for why someone can’t find purpose in their pain that can be used for someone else’s good.
I hope you’ll get a chance to watch this week’s Passion in Action episode Thursday at 5pm only on www.InternetFabulous.TV where we’ll be highlighting more people who are changing the world one life at a time through their passion.
What do you think about the Coles? Could you do something like this after such a great tragedy?
Thrive on Purpose!
