This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Sara Santiago delivers an emotional roller coaster of a talk with hearty guffaws and powerful, empathetic silences. She has suffered from epilepsy, and consequently, has moments of her life literally ripped away from her by her seizures. Sara warns us to cherish the moment, to make our stories, and to share our stories while we still can.
Sara speaks to clinical caregivers on improving care for patients with chronic or progressive illnesses, and gives frequent talks to groups of chronically ill patients, empowering them to find the strength and humor they need to overcome the obstacles of their illness and prove to themselves that their physical limits do not define them.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
