We're going to answer these questions and more when we talk to a woman who experienced this life changing event and went on to find her happily ever after, and she's going to inspire you to overcome your challenges.

My guest in this episode is Holly Frances a Canadian writer, speaker, illness survivor/advocate, and certified trainer. She is also a mom in a blended family of five and the face behind Holly After GBS on social media, where her recovery videos have inspired millions of people around the world.  When she was twenty-six, just weeks after giving birth, she was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome. She spent two months fighting for her life in the ICU on a ventilator, completely paralyzed unable to be a mother to her newborn baby girl.

Over time and with diligence, fortitude, the will to survive as well as the love of her daughter, she learned to breathe on her own, strengthen her muscles, to eat, drink, walk and talk again. She went on to re-invent her life to inspire motivate and educate others going through GBS. Her journey is documented in her viral YouTube Video – Holly’s Journey: From Guillain -Barre Syndrome to Happily Ever After, and has a new book coming out January 2023 entitled “Happily Ever After”  Find out more and how Holly can help you visit https://www.hollyaftergbs.com
