In this episode, Varen Rogers shares her perspectve on life while her dad fights ALS.

Here, sweet inspiration comes from 10-year-old Varen Rogers who’s giving us her young outlook on life with ALS in her family. Varen accidentally made a name for herself with one sweet gesture, a tribute to her father, Justin Rogers who was diagnosed with ALS at 35. Varen wanted to give a shout out to her dad at the Cincinnati Reds first Lou Gehrig Day baseball game. She had used her money from her 10th birthday to buy a memo board and wrote: “My dad has ALS. He is my Hero. I love you dad.” The media captured Varen holding up this sign during the game and it spread all over social media. I, like many, fell in love with Varen’s beautiful smile and tender heart. I just had to have her on to let her know how she inspired me. She was more than happy to give us an inside look at ALS from a child’s point of view. So happy for this special chat. Varen invites you to share this with a friend in honor of her precious hero, her dad! Thank you for listening. Hugs, Lorri
