Today's episode brings you a story of terrible hardship and outstanding inspiration. After being discriminated against in her own country because of being Jewish, after losing one of her four children and experiencing the loss of a brother and a sister, our guest still finds life to be wonderful and has found many reasons to go on. This is my conversation with the author of "Dancing To The Darkest Light," Soheila Adelipour.

Being Jewish, Soheila and her family escaped the volatile situation in Iran in 1979 after the Islamic revolution and settled in New York. She received her bachelor's degree in Business and her master's degree in Art Gallery Management while her first two kids were in diapers! She was involved with the World of Arts and Antiques in New York City, followed by running high-end gift stores.

Life was normal with her 4 kids, until a series of unfortunate events started. She lost her second son in Boston in a tragic fire accident. A few years later both her sister and brother passed away after enduring long, torturous and horrific illnesses. Soheila was there every step of the way during those tough times, as she was a 100% match with her young brother, giving him her bone marrow and 60% of her liver hoping to save him. Soheila has established, Stefan Adelipour For Life Foundation in memory of her young son. She organizes fundraising every year on his birthday and helps people in need, regardless of race, color or religion.
