On the last Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast of the Year, my friend and guest, Farron Dozier will be joining me on December 28th, 1-2 PT.
Behind this beautiful smile is a man that has faced many challenges in his life starting at a young age. Little did he know as a youngster at the age of 5, when his arm was aching it wasn’t the growing pains one would associate with a healthy little boy.
After high school, Farron enrolled in the Army at age 19. This experience shaped his life then and continues to be a major passion in his life today.
We will be talking about that and what happened while he was serving. A pivotal moment happened during a routine physical in 1999 when his blood work determined that he had Sickle Cell Trait. In 2006 while participating in a physical fitness test, he collapsed with trait exertion. He will be explaining what that means along with what the differences are between Sickle Cell Anemia and Sickle Cell Trait.
Farron retired SFC, served for 24 years, and has a keen appreciation for the Military Service Men and Women especially those that have struggled emotionally and physically once their service was over. He is actively involved in Veteran concerns.
When asked, Farron would describe himself as a Statesman. Why did he choose that word?
Farron is the Founder, Creator, and Executive Director of the Sickle Cell Trait Organization. He has set out to reeducate the community about Sickle Cell and its impact and results in the world. From Awareness, Prevention, and Education. He speaks to many organizations about the impact of Sickle Cell Trait.
As a fellow broadcaster on Blog Talk Radio, Farron also shares the importance of Mental Health Veteran Awareness on his Trench Talk Podcast.
What was his transition like from the Military?
Lastly, Farron will be sharing his poignant story about his dad. He is writing a book about their father-son relationship and the lasting influences he continues to focus on. It’s raw and touching.
I would describe Farron with these words…
Caring, Sharing, and Advocating.
He has a story to share!
What’s Your Story? I want to tell it.
