Relentlessly Resilient

Thom Brockbank on learning to live with love after his near-death experience

Thom Brockbank lived a good and healthy life, which is why he was shocked when in May 2022, he was struck down by a “widow maker” heart attack. Thinking quickly he was able to call for help and receive the life-saving care he needed to survive the ordeal, which included an out-of-body near-death experience. He joins this episode of Relentlessly Resilient to share what he has learned about living to the fullest with love, even with a damaged heart. 

Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
