About Kelsie Snow

In June 2019 my husband, Chris, was diagnosed with ALS at 37 years old and given 6-18 months to live. I'm a former journalist (I covered Major League Baseball for five years) and, almost immediately after he was diagnosed, I started writing about our experiences. Eventually, I started publishing my stories on my blog, www.kelsiesnowwrites.com.

I am not an expert on grief or sadness. I'm just a wife and a mom to two young kids who has been forced to reckon with mortality and loss in a very constant way. I write to process my feelings, to shed light on grief and loss — feelings that are universal but that we often keep hidden away from the rest of the world — and, maybe mostly, to remind myself that while there is so much sadness behind me and perhaps much more sadness in front of me, sadness is not all there is in this life.

When Chris was diagnosed, I avoided other people's sad stories as a rule, but as time wore on I found myself seeking them out. After more than a year of writing about our life on my blog, I learned there is great comfort in knowing how others have loved and lost and kept going. And I realized there’s a thirst out there for more spaces to talk about these hard parts of our lives, so I started a podcast that offers just that.

Sorry, I'm Sad is a podcast that chronicles our story in real-time, from our desperate early days, to the hopefulness of a promising clinical trial, to heartbreaking setbacks and constant grappling with mortality. Chris joins me for conversations about our experiences, and I talk to others who have dealt with grief, sharing our stories about sadness, loss and the importance of hope.
