Dana Anderson-Helstrom is the tenth guest in the “Minnesota Chronicles”, a special series from my time in Minnesota for the Boys State High School Tourney. We connected on a phone call, and Dana shared some an incredibly emotional story about her journey with childhood cancer, as her son had been diagnosed. Dana shares the powerful tales of a fantastic spirit in her son, Tucker. And she also regales me with the difficulties, and ensuing strength, of Tucker’s two younger sister’s who had to face losing their brother at far too young an age. We cover a vast array of topics regarding her family, and there is quite a bit of sadness, followed by strength, and eventually a great way to remember her boy in a non-profit: Team Tucker (https://playlaughlove.org/). Enjoy an episode that may take a couple intermissions to get through.
