When her husband was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in June 2019 and given 6-12 months to live, Kelsie Snow avoided other people's sad stories as a rule, but as time wore on she found herself seeking them out. Snow, a former sports reporter for The Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times and St. Paul Pioneer Press, began writing about her life on her website and learned there is comfort in knowing how others have loved, lost and kept going. Sorry, I'm Sad chronicles the Snows' story in real-time. From the desperate early days, to the hopefulness of a promising clinical trial, to heartbreaking setbacks and constant grappling with mortality, and Chris' unexpected death in September of 2023, Kelsie, along with others she has met along this path, share stories about grief, loss and the importance of hope.

What beautiful stuff

Sometimes I get sad. Like a very deep sad that’s unnavigable and I come here to this podcast to feel OK that I am this sad. Kelsei understands a wounded heart. And it’s so nice to sit in that space with her when you too are so wounded and broken. It’s like a friend hugging you through the radio waves. It’s meant so much to me and my own story. Thank you for this podcast. Big hug back.

Articulate about grief

Having lost a loved one to ALS and losing a parent, hearing Kelsie speak about grief is devastatingly beautiful. She articulates her stages of grief in a way that resonated with me.

Hope you have a wonderful summer!

Rooting for you, Chris and your children ❤️
