Surviving & Thriving
 
NEW EPISODES COMING SOON!

This week, we headed back into the studio to record more episodes of our popular and life-changing show, "Surviving & Thriving." Host Wendy Chioji and reporters Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer spent the day at WKMG Local 6 to once again spread the message of hope, inspiration and possibility.


We were thrilled to welcome Local 6 anchors Lisa Bell and Gaard Swanson to the set. They will be joining Wendy as hosts of the show and to contribute reports that shine the spotlight on men and women who have made incredible recoveries from some of life's toughest challenges. 


We've shared an album with behind-the-scenes photos of our "Surviving & Thriving" shoot on our Facebook page.

The next episode of "Surviving & Thriving," presented by MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, is scheduled to air on Friday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. on WKMG Local 6, so mark your calendars now! Stay tuned for more announcements about the next show, including our story on a family who learned how a cancer diagnosis can actually lead to a life-saving discovery. It's an hour you and your family will not want to miss. Until then, we invite you meet the inspirational people below.
