Happy New Year to you and yours! I'm trying to kickstart this year on a positive note... so this session of Bridging the Gap will be filled with music of hope, love, positivity and forward movement.

Today on the body show, we’ll hear two incredible stories of hope, from a mother who just wouldn't quit and a woman who flew thousands of miles to save herself.
