Living Like You Mean It with Natalie Weaver

Who Lives Like This?! show

Summary: In today’s podcast, we talk to @Natalie Weaver about the transition from a private family life to advocate for our child on the national stage. Natalie’s advocacy is inspired by her daughter Sophia who wouldn't survive without healthcare. She is the founder of Sophia’s Voice which aims to help people in the disability community in various ways. She is also the co-founder of Advocates for Medically Fragile Kids NC and a founder’s council member for United States of Care. While Natalie had always dreamed of being a mother, she never saw herself as an advocate, but once she started, she says that she felt “exhilarated". We had a wide ranging conversation about caregiving, the transition to advocating nationally and the not so fun side of dealing with internet trolls. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.
