Join my Facebook Podcast Community at: I'm Dying To Tell You Podcast. Thanks for joining me. Hugs, Lorri. On Friday the 13th, February 2004 at the age of 37, I was told I have ALS.
By this day, I had come across information about ALS on the internet. After the doctor told me I had ALS, all I could remember reading was “ALS ...fatal, no cure.”
How could this be? I was otherwise completely healthy and very active, yet I was just given 2-5 years to live.
I’m dying from ALS, yet I’m so encouraged to live life to the fullest. I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive.
I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!
I’ll share some stories from simply encouraging to truly extraordinary - then offer a private supportive community group to learn more, interact with guests and to know you are not alone.
Thank you for being here with me.
