What an incredibly inspiring story. The music is a bit intrusive but you can turn it down and still get the story. I noticed there’s a book version of the story too: Happily Ever After: My Journey with Guillain-Barré Syndrome and How I Got My Life Back.
At the age of 26, less than 3 weeks after giving birth to her first child, Holly was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disorder, called Guillain-Barre syndrome. It started with a pain in her neck and a weakness in her legs, and within 12 hours, she could no longer walk anymore. Within 72 hours, she was completely paralyzed and could no longer breathe on her own anymore. But watch this for the happiest of endings.
