Life is hard, stressful, fast-paced and can sometimes be overwhelming. That’s why is partnering with MorningStar Senior Living of Idaho Falls to bring you Life Lessons.

We’re asking MorningStar residents to share gems of wisdom every Tuesday with us. Some of their answers will make you laugh, some may make you cry, some may even change your life.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Karen Monson is speaking with us about her grandmother, who was diagnosed with breast cancer decades ago. This same grandmother saved Karen’s life when she was born without a heartbeat.

Karen tells us how her grandmother held her near a hot coal stove through the night to bring her back to life.
