Could you live with monthly or even more frequent, pain crises that may require a hospital stay, blood transfusion or bone marrow transplant to temporarily halt the crisis? How would you maintain your work, your household and your family? What is it like to live with the continuous threat of stroke, kidney failure or liver failure? How would you cope with fear, isolation and lack of information in your community? Where would you look for help and support? What would you be willing to do to find a ray of hope, hope that is not available through medical treatments? Join us this week for an amazing story of an unlikely connection, a meaningful relationship and an almost unbelievable journey of recovery and hope. This is the story of a little ripple that traveled well beyond the imagination. If you have ever wondered what one person can do, this is the story that will dispel all doubt.
