Daniel Rinaldi shares his story of how losing his older brother to an inoperable brain tumor at the age of 10 changed his life forever.
“I think once my little brother came along; it was easier to let some of that go and really try and connect and cultivate that relationship and try and be as present and intentional with my younger brother that I could, as it could be because I just wanted to be this ideal older brother. I'm sure that has a lot to do with not having my older brother.”
