My Journey to Lourdes

In December of 2015, I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Over the coming days, the weight of my diagnosis became real: How would I cope? Who would take care of my family? Though my body was failing, this disease could not touch my spirit. I turned to Our Lady for help, taking a pilgrimage to Lourdes in France for healing and wholeness.
