Ep. 15 – Monica Green; Pediatric Cancer, Grieving, & Motherhood


Meet Monica, a mother of three, whose son Mason was diagnosed with pediatric brain cancer. She shares the struggle of being caregiver for one child while still parenting her other children. Monica describes the challenges of being a primary caregiver and how that role changes when your loved one passes away. After Mason went to heaven, Monica said it was a challenge to allow herself, her husband, her son, and her daughter to grieve in their own, unique ways. Monica and her husband started the Mason Green Foundation, which raises money and awareness for pediatric brain cancer.
