Posted in charities, non-profits on August 2, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

Christina Parrish, is a 14 year “Sur-Thriver” of Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer.  Christina describes herself as sur-thriver because she strives to thrive everyday.  “It’s important to realize that you are surviving everyday no matter the struggles.”  Christina is the Founder of The Purple Iris Foundation.  Their mission is to raise awareness, provide support, and give hope to indivduals and families affected by cancer, in Maine.  Christina was in great shape and exercised regularly. She will share her journey with us and how her workout on a Pilates ball sent her to the doctor.

If you or anyone you know is in Maine you can contact The Purple Iris Foundation 

“As long as you say my name, I shall live forever.” This episode of Living Hope is dedicated to Peggy Kessler.  Peggy was diagnosed in 2001 and died in 2018.  Chris and I had the honor of meeting Peggy.  Peggy was a great inspiration not only to us but those she came in contact with.


A Quick Start

Hear how two friends who’d worked together in the home improvement industry (Scott Seneff and Travis Bryant) started imagining ways to improve their own lives by opening their own business. With lots of ideas bantered back and forth over a cigar and some whiskey. Until the happenstance sight of a Pedego Electric Bike store in Florida (while one of them was on vacation there) quickly set the gears in motion for this dynamic duo to open a similar store in their hometown of Columbus, Ohio this past April.  A fast start for this fast moving pair that quickly placed them as one of the the top ten Pedego dealers in the country (all before they’d even hired their first employee!)

Two more entrepreneurs who saw an opening and quickly shifted gears to pursue it. Suddenly finding themselves “off to the races” and riding at the front of the pack in today’s quickly evolving eBike Revolution. On this week’s PEDEGO PODCAST.
