Your Fantastic Mind

Second Chances

Season 1, Episode 6 of 9

In this episode, YFM focuses on three separate stories, connected by the thread that in each one, the person has been given a second chance. The first one highlights a program for adults with autism who are aging out of the system. The show follows them through three weeks of living away from home as they gain independence and begin building what will one day hopefully be an autonomous life. The second story follows a wife and mother, who after a decade of misdiagnoses, learns she has acromegaly, a cyst on the thyroid that can destroy a person's health and appearance. The episode documents her journey to undergo surgery and restore her lost health. The final segment introduces a young mother diagnosed with a rare brain cyst that can be life ending. We are there for the novel surgery and her complete recovery that follows.
