Louise recovered against difficult odds and continues to thrive.

“Good health is having no fatigue, having a good appetite, going to sleep and awakening easily, having a good memory, having good humor having precision in thought and action and being honest, humble and grateful and loving.
“Your body, like everything else in your life, is a mirror of your inner thoughts and beliefs. Every cell responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak.”Louise Hay
