Some of my favorite things that Pat said on the show were:

“I learned the power of small actions. And that even the tiniest action creates a ripple that reaches so far.”
“Ultimately, I learned to look at time differently. It’s not something that you manage. It’s something that you’re working within. And I just stopped trying to do everything and give myself some slack so I could enjoy the precious time I had with my kids.”
“The possibility of change is in every moment”

(Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms) Nancy shares openly about the journey of grief she has travelled since the loss of Hannah and the help she now offers families facing D.R.E.S.S. and loss across the world. This is a heart wrenching interview.

Definition of D.R.E.S.S. from Wikipedia:

DRESS syndrome stands for Drug Reaction (or Rash) with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms. The term was coined in a 1996 report in an attempt to simplify terminology for a syndrome recognized as early as 1959. It is a syndrome, caused by exposure to certain medications, that may cause a rash, fever, inflammation of internal organs,lymphadenopathy, and characteristic hematologic abnormalities such as eosinophilia, thrombocytopenia, and atypical lymphocytosis. The syndrome carries about a 10% mortality.
