Rosilinda "Rosie" Babin is the mother of a severely wounded warrior, and knows first-hand the challenges that service members and their families face after they've been wounded and what the caregivers face when taking care of a severely wounded patient. She herself faced many paths with no clear direction and many "No's" from places she turned to for help after her son was critically wounded in 2003. Her tenacious, yet gentle way allowed her to see past the no's to find the answers, guidance and the resources she needed for her family. We talk openly as she shares a parents worst nightmare receiving that dreaded call about their son he's been seriously wounded and so far from home. What they learned as a family, how they grew and what developed from this tragic situation. The formation of the non profit Help Our Wounded, which serves many veterans, those who so bravely serve to keep us safe at home, and their families as they learn how to live their "new normal".

The Sky’s the Limit is a motivating, inspirational program which is based on my journey from medical professional to patient, highlighting people from all walks of life and various stages of overcoming adversity, their challenges and awakening to the rediscovery of themselves, a transformation. I engage with a number of successful life coaches, authors, athletes and everyday people who discuss their journey and process as well as exploring the concepts of Eastern and Western medicine. We are all learning life’s lessons every day and living in the moment, no matter where we are in our journey.
