We have an extra-special Mortgage Mom’s interview for this edition. An industry friend faced what all mothers fear the worst, their baby being sick. I got to ask Jen Peachman, manager of strategic partnerships at Capacity, a few questions that will touch all of your hearts and give you hope for any challenges that you face! Moms (and dads) are superheroes with such strength!
What’s helped to keep you positive dealing with your daughter’s lifelong health issues?
That’s simple, my daughter is my inspiration to keep going, to keep pushing forward, and to never give up hope. She’s 15 years old and has been through more in her years than most should have to endure in an entire lifetime. Despite a diagnosis of a ultra-rare genetic disease that affects only 500 people in the US, five surgeries in the last five years, including a kidney transplant during the beginning of a global pandemic, she always tries her hardest, always fights against the odds and proves others wrong, and always has a smile on her face. If she can smile through all she faces on a daily basis, it’s my obligation to stay positive and be strong so that beautiful smile of hers doesn’t fade along the way.
