We're starting a new mini-series called "Laughter is the Best Medicine" and we need your help! Even in the most difficult moments of any crisis, it's important to keep a sense of humor. We'd like to hear your stories of a time during your healthcare experience you couldn't help but laugh. 

Using the Voice Memo app on your phone, record yourself telling a 1-4 minute story from your healthcare journey that cracks you up. Then, send that voice memo in an email to jim@storieswithapurpose.com. This is your chance to help heal someone else through the power of laughter!

You could be featured in the next Laughter is the Best Medicine short, so find us on Facebook and Twitter @SWAPPodcast to stay up to date.
