Jason and Marjorie have brought Defying the Odds to more than 50 venues, including hospitals, conferences, research institutes, elementary schools, high schools and colleges.


In 2009, they testified at a congressional briefing on eliminating lifetime caps on health insurance coverage. In 2011, a grant from the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care enabled them to speak at veterans hospitals in New York and Massachusetts. In 2012, they were featured at TEDxBeaconStreet.


During a crisis, you don’t have to go far to hear a worst-case scenario. Jason and Marjorie offer an alternative. A testament to the power of hope, Defying the Odds is an unforgettable story of love, music, medicine and mindset.
