This conversation has been 10 years in the making. Grateful am I to have Tia Timpson on The Back Story with me tomorrow to discuss her journey to healing from what could have been a life ending stroke. Not only is Tia alive and well, but she’s accomplished some absolutely amazing things since our last sit down on my TV show 10 years ago.

In fact, visit my website www.mischainspires.com to see the video of Tia’s story and then plan to join us as we discuss it all at 1pm PST/4pm EST on @kbla1580.
