108 Interview Jodi Orgill Brown: The Sun Still Shines –

Surviving a brain tumor


Welcome to the Love Your Story podcast. Today’s story is about a woman’s heartbreaking beautiful journey. At first blush, it’s hard to see how someone could reframe a non-operable brain tumor wrapped around the brain stem, the paralysis of the right side of her face, and on-going headaches, pain, and pressure as holding any beauty, but today we’ll find out how Jodi Orgill Brown does just that. Stay tuned for our discussion.

Jodi Orgill Brown is a certified nonprofit consultant, as well as a professional speaker, a best-selling author, and a brain tumor survivor. Jodi’s professional clients and partners include: The U.S. Department of Defense, The Christopher Reeve Foundation, Intermountain Health Care, The Weber State Goddard School of Business, The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome, America First Credit Union, United Way (Salt Lake and Northern Utah chapters), the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the NOVA Principles Foundation, and One Refugee.

Her memoir, The Sun Still Shines, won the 2016 Gold Quill and is an Amazon Bestseller. Her second book, Rise Above Depression, was released in November 2017 and hit the #1 spot on Amazon in February 2018.

Jodi has lived in the Middle East, and on both U.S. coasts, but believes home is where you make it. She is the wife of Tolan Brown and they are parents to four amazing children.

About the author, Lori

Author of five books and over 100 magazine and newspaper articles, Lori found a fascination with the personal narrative during her master's degree research in Folklore at Utah State University. Coming to understand the nuance and power of story, the automatic but unrecognized uses, the cultural curtains that story pulls back for us to peak behind, she let her excitement spill over into her own journey of personal empowerment and the excitement of sharing it all with others.
