    Ep 12: Two Motivated Moms Share Inspiration Behind Rare Disease TV Show - The Balancing Act Producers Carri Levy and Molly Mager Open Up About Lifetime Series

    Two moms, Carri Levy and Molly Mager, created a rare disease medical series called Behind The Mystery: Rare and Genetic, a recurring series on the award-winning show The Balancing Act that airs on Lifetime TV.



    Today we’re going to be talking about how they were inspired to create this show over 8 years ago, plus, in honor of Rare Disease Day on Feb 29th, they are launching a new digital education campaign.



    For the past eight years, Behind The Mystery has been bringing undiagnosed, misdiagnosed and complex medical conditions to the forefront by partnering with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies who are on a mission to educate the public, which should lead to earlier diagnosis, treatment and provide a community for people suffering from these disorders.



    The Balancing Act’s website (thebalancingact.com/rare) is a valuable 24/7 resource for patients and doctors who want to learn more about the over 85 featured rare and genetic diseases on Behind The Mystery. The show airs on Lifetime at 7:30 am EST (check local listings).

Review of Episode 51 on Bullying

Another great podcast!

First I appreciate how Catherine distinguished between bullying and non-bullying because sometimes it is not clear.

When a child is being bullied, sometimes parents may not know where to even begin in advocating for their children because being bullied is so hurtful and sometimes resolution is just not easy. This podcast was very informative on ways to advocate for your child who is being bullied as well as the expectations a parent should have of the school once it is reported to them. This was sooo good!
