Family is the Focus of this Impact

On this episode of Impact we focus on family and how those closest to us help through the tough times. We will meet a young man who’s father injected him with the aids virus when he was a baby. Together he and his mom are giving this tragic story a happy ending helping others suffering from HIV. Go under the sea with a closeknit group of divers who discover a medical benefit to scuba diving. Family history forces a local woman to realize she will have Alzhiemers Disease, now she’s using that information to help others. We will also show you a local organization delivering blessings in a basket to families caring for sick loved ones.

Impact is living up to its name by highlighting people, companies, and organizations making the commitment to find innovative ways to improve the quality of life for others. These are the good news stories from our own community that will focus on those making a difference in someone's life, whether that's in their neighborhood, community or around the world.
