The Rare Life
Madeline Cheney
Curated by a fellow special needs mom in the trenches, The Rare Life features Madeline’s own experiences and take-aways as she parents her son Kimball who was born with several major birth defects due to his extremely rare genetic disorder, as well as conversations with other parents who share their own advice and stories of loving a child with medical complexities. Their authentic conversations don’t shy away from the strong and mixed emotions that often accompany special needs parenting. Guests will also include a variety of professionals, offering practical advice and solutions on anything from processing grief and trauma to ways to encourage language in a child with hearing and/or vision loss.

Amazing!!
I have known Maddy for years and this podcast is nothing short of amazing! I have learned so much about things people deal with that I didn’t even know existed! Every episode I learn new things and understand a little bit better of what some people go through on a daily basis. This is such a great listen for anyone!

Love and honesty
From the first episode you can’t help but feel the love. Madeline is amazing at not only sharing her own story, but connecting with her guests in a heartwarming way. Oh, and I love the format!

Authentic and heartwarming
Madeline delivers authentic, informative, and heartwarming stories through her experiences with Kimball in her podcast. As a pediatric therapist, I learned a lot through seeing the experiences with a special needs child through the eyes of a parent. I am especially looking forward to the interview with Kimball’s therapist as well. I like how Madeline structures her podcast seasons and episodes, so we feel excited to learn more!
