HumanKind by Brad Aronson


Changing the world one small act at a time

Brad Aronson’s life changed in an instant when his wife, Mia, was diagnosed with leukemia. Following her diagnosis, Brad spent most of the next two-and-a-half years either by Mia’s side as she received treatment or trying to shield their five-year-old son from the worst of Mia’s illness. Amid the stress and despair of waiting for the treatment to ultimately work, Brad and Mia were met by an outpouring of kindness from family, friends, and even complete strangers. Inspired by this generosity of spirit, Brad began writing about the people who rescued his family from that dark time, often with the smallest gestures. But he didn’t stop there. Knowing that the world is full of moments when a simple act of kindness transforms a life, he sought out these stories and shares some of the best ones in HumanKind.
