This is a follow-up interview from a podcast we did in October of 2014 titled Setting Boundaries With Love (Interview begins @ the 21:00 minute mark) At the time, Rick’s wife Trish was battling with a rare form of Hydrocephalus and in need of exposure to raise funds for the medical expenses that came with this journey.  We were happy to oblige.

Fast forward to February of 2016 and we pick up where we left off in October of 2014- only this time Trish was able to join us for the interview.  It’s a heartfelt interview of the miracles of medicine as well as faith.
