Episode 22 - Ruby, the Mito Warrior


Today’s episode highlights the positivity and strength of a family that includes 1-year-old Ruby and her parents, Raquel and Jack. Through this interview, you’ll hear the parents describe Ruby as a happy baby who is a bit feisty and very determined.

Raquel and Jack cover a wide range of topics, including the scarcity of resources for Leigh Syndrome, how nursing school helped with assessment, and the beauty of seeing their community come together for a Lemonade Brigade event that raised funds for Ruby’s medical bills. To close out the interview, they acknowledge each other’s strengths as Raquel points out her husband’s positivity as being essential and Jack speaks highly of his wife’s courage.
