In January 2022, Briana returned with her newest YouTube series, “Tea with Bri,” reminding TSW warriors and caregivers that they can make it through. At 7 years TSW and after three recent major surgeries Briana brings needed cheer to TSW newcomers and veterans.
“While the world keeps spinning on, most of us are locked inside with physical ailments beyond compare. Loneliness from wanting to do so much, but being benched because of our illness and not having much if any support from the medical community when we need it most. TSW can feel like a prison sentence…now I didn’t come here to depress you, TSW has pretty much got that covered. I wanted to leave you with four things, four ways to keep that train of hope moving forward.
First, you are not alone. If you ever find yourself needing companionship or support there are so many TSW Facebook groups that are private, just for us, even for caregivers and mothers that are expecting. There is even ITSAN, our very own nonprofit that fights for us every single day. Just their very presence gives us validity.” -Briana Banos
