A baby, destined to die, lives. Here, Marty's story begins in a small, rural hospital, with no hope. And yet, hope and miracles surround her as she enters the world. Follow her journey as she struggles to overcome each hurdle that enters her world while trying to raise a family and maintain her professional career - one she has come to love. Relive her fears as she is told of a mysterious illness for which there is no cure, thus losing almost everything she holds dear to her heart. Walk with her as she presses forward, with her limited accessibility to her environment shrinking and her mobility in her lower extremities weakening each day. Never giving up, she transforms into a survivor determined to toss the label of degeneration out the window. She stands strong, unencumbered by insinuations and innuendos, and begins her process to identify true validation for her illness, lurking deep in the shadows. Giving up will never be an option again. May her journey inspire each of us to delve further into our inner soul and find our own strength, regardless of life's issues, and continue towards our own personal mission on this planet.
