You may know Bryce Dallas Howard from her many beloved film & television roles such as The Village, Arrested Development, and Jurassic World – but on top of being a talented actress, Bryce is also an amazing friend. Bryce was a fan of Dr. Anna Akbari’s writing and reached out. She then took one of Anna’s online courses, after which they started working together directly, and they quickly became close friends. Soon after, Anna was diagnosed with an incredibly rare form of ovarian cancer which kicked off a multi-year journey through many surgeries and treatments. Bryce felt called to help in some way, and launched a GoFundMe campaign for Anna’s medical costs. But it’s the backstory here that’s what is really wonderful. Today’s episode is somehow hilarious, moving and inspiring all at once.
