Find the Helpers with Fred Guttenberg

Fred Guttenberg is the first person we’ve asked back on the podcast for a second episode. His brother Michael was a doctor and a 9/11 responder who died in 2017 from 9/11 related cancer. Fred’s family was still grieving when his daughter Jaime was murdered five months later in the Parkland school shooting. But rather than run from it, Fred’s spent every second of every day fighting to make sure it never happened again. His new book Find the Helpers: What 9/11 and Parkland Taught Me About Recovery, Purpose, and Hope is available order now.
