In this special episode, I am joined by, the inspiring and compassionate Martha Hoy from her home in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Martha Hoy is a registered nurse, a writer, a humanitarian, author, speaker, world traveler and founder of Mother Martha Family Foundation (“MMFF”). She is passionate about improving the lives of those in her community and in Uganda. MMFF is in partnership with AMKA Foundation Africa with the mutual goal to improve the lives of those within the global community.
She has a unique story that involves surviving a horrific car accident, fifteen surgeries, an abusive marriage and abandonment by her family. Despite experiencing and surviving these traumas, she is thriving and her story is about survival, triumph and the strength of the human will. As a humanitarian, Martha supported orphans in Uganda, but little did she know that the connections she made in Uganda would become her life line in her time of need.
She has written two books about her story, “Lead with your heart” and “Enjoy the Journey.” Her books are available on www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com and www.takealot.com.
