We’re Not Stumped Podcast Episode 3 with guest Christine Caron
Sepsis survivor Christine Caron is as energetic and passionate as she is knowledgeable. Nine years ago, Christine lost both her lower legs and her lower left arm and hand to sepsis. In this episode, Christine explains how a very minor cut on her hand lead to her life-changing experience. She imparts her knowledge from both her experience and her research on sepsis and talks about the warning signs and how early detection can save lives.
Christine leads two support groups for people suffering from post-sepsis syndrome and another for those struggling to deal with their amputations. She discusses the inspiration for starting these groups: Going from having the support needed while in rehab, to having little to no support as a survivor.
Congenital amputee Mike Bolland interviews other amputees, family members of amputees plus people in the prosthetic / support fields. These interviews are both fun and educational and nothing will be held back - no questions are off limits! Please use our contact form if you would like to be considered as a guest. We'd love to have you!
Season 2 Finale
Season 2 is in the books! In this season two finale episode, I have three main topics:
My thoughts on prosthetics: I am sick of how amputees who choose not to wear prosthetics are treated within the amputee community. I also get disgusted by prosthetic manufactures who dismiss certain people in the community in their sole mission to make a profit off amputees.
Amputee Workouts: I am looking for amputees like you who workout to come on the podcast to share your tips and tricks.
Calling all guests: Many amputees feel that their story isn’t worthy of sharing. I call BS on that, and I want you on. Now.
