(Ep10)Greatest caregiver of crazy: Remembering my Papa

This one’s all about a caregiver of crazy who is for me the single greatest male influence in my life - my Papà – Antonino Milana. Today’s the anniversary of his death - 29 years ago. I can’t believe he’s been gone that long. I was only 24 when he died unexpectedly. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him and all the life lessons he gave to me.

Who has been your greatest influence?


A storyteller at heart who built a career in writing, media & marketing, Paolina Milana is grateful for the magic AND the madness she's experienced. Her roots are entangled with mental illness and taking on caregiving roles -- something she has come to realize is not unique to her; rather, it seems to be common on several levels among others, especially the high-functioning women who from the outside looking in seem to have it all together.

Madness To Magic brings to listeners stories of real world encounters with what we all experience and yet feel shamed to keep silent. Embracing ALL of us is key to tapping into our own power to make all things possible.
