Danialle sits down with Nancy Sovran, executive director of Wish Upon a Teen, to find out what sparked her desire to become involved with the nonprofit, which helps improve the lives of sick kids. Then, University of Michigan neurologist Dr. Eva Feldman — one of the world’s foremost experts on the human brain — shares exciting new developments in her field.
Nancy Sovran founder of Wish Upon a Teen
When Nancy Sovran’s daughter Hope needed a bone marrow transplant, her hospital room looked like most others — dark, dreary and depressing. So Nancy decided to spruce it up. The result: Hope’s spirits were lifted. That experience led her to create Wish Upon a Teen, a nonprofit that helps make the lives of sick kids better — and, in many cases, “normal.” Nancy tells Danialle about all the amazing work her organization is doing.
