When the opportunity to save a life comes your way, would you do it? Even if that opportunity means giving up one of your kidneys? That’s the question presented and answered by our three guests today. Tim Chhim, was born in Cambodia and lived through 3 wartime regimes—Monarchy, Republic and Communistic. After losing his home to American bombings and his father shortly thereafter in 1972, Tim was forced out of the Capital by the Maoists after thousands were killed. Learning that he would be executed Tim ran from death row escaping many rounds of bullets. Tim used his personal initiative, self-discipline, positive mental attitude, enthusiasm, and the application of going extra mile principles to form a mastermind alliance with 12 other people. But, days later, the group got caught in a deep jungle. Only Tim and his 2 other friends survived. Taylor Tagg is a spiritual life coach, author, seminar leader, and speaker encouraging others to walk the path to peace. As a gesture of that peace, Taylor was set to give his kidney to Tony before the surgery was sadly called off. Now Tony needs another better-suited kidney donor to be his hero. Tom Cunningham has been a champion of overcoming adversity since being diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 5. He has had 4 hips, 4 knees and 2 shoulders replaced and been hospitalized about 40 times. His severe range of motion restrictions and high doses of prednisone do not keep Tom from living an amazing life as a speaker who encourages people to live positively with the challenges life throws at them.
