Also seeking human interest stories about people who have turned their lives around by "overcoming" hurdles in life- fighting a serious illness, battling addictions, going through a divorce after being married 30+ years, finding a new job or starting a business after 65, losing and keeping off weight (30+ lbs), living in a small retirement apartment after downsizing from a large home, exercising after age 50, etc.
