I never imagined in my worst nightmares that at 47, my husband would be diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and that I would lose him by 51.

My name is Janet Fanaki and during my husband Adam's surgery and treatments, I spent a lot of time people-watching in the waiting room. How were they getting through the day? How do they find strength?

I started interviewing people who I admired for their resilience and began a blog. Soon I was getting more and more recommendations and strangers started tweeting me their stories.

RESILIENT PEOPLE became a way to prove that you don't need resources or connections to start a movement. Just the passion to make a change. I interview people around the world who faced adversity, bounced back and now help others be resilient too.

Join me as I introduce you to the people you wish you always knew, and now do.
