It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times.
Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better.
I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”
