Therese Hughes had a kidney transplant 19 years ago and it changed her life.
Therese is a photographer and a writer from California.
Her exhibition is entitled “In a Heartbeat”, where she shows photographs and tells the stories of American women veterans from WWII up until today.

In the podcast you will hear:
How Therese’s family never spoke about her mom being in the US Navy
How Therese discovered her own family history after both of her parents passed
How Therese celebrates two birthdays: the day she was born and the day she got her kidney transplant
How she now sees the world differently
How women in the military don’t have a voice, never received honors, are not recognized
How women who might look unremarkable have remarkable lives and stories to tell
Why women chose to serve their country
If, given another chance, would these women do it again??

Women in the military see themselves as peacekeepers.
Therese Hughes is celebrating these women with her exhibition and book.
