CBS’s THE TALK is celebrating Mother’s Day with a special series of reports called “Moms Who Move Us” all this week.
In addition to taped reports highlighting compelling and motivational stories about exceptional moms, the hosts of the program will pay tribute to their own mothers.
On Monday, the show will feature Carolyn Glaspy, whose son, NFL player Chris Henry, had been involved in a terrible accident that left him brain dead. Glaspy made a courageous decision following her son’s death that allowed several others to see another Mother’s Day.
On Tuesday, a Plano, Texas woman is honored for inspiring her daughter to help those in need. This mom’s impact was so great that her daughter has created a local food pantry and is working on a program that could help parents cook more nutritious meals for their own families.
On Wednesday, a former drug user who was in and out of jail following the death of her own son managed to completely transform her life, and has since helped more than 600 women get back on their feet as well.
On Thursday, the show honors a mom who made an ultimate sacrifice to save her daughter’s life following a boating accident. Her family is preparing to face its first Mother’s Day without her.
And on Friday, a young mom is trying to cope with her one-year-old daughter who is in desperate need of a heart transplant. Her story will explain the heart defect the child was
born with, and the unique struggles the family is facing while waiting for a heart.
So be sure to tune in for these special stories about exceptional moms (and don’t forget
to send a card to your own).
THE TALK airs weekdays at 2:00pm on LIVE 5 WCSC.
