In September 1980 Evy McDonald was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and given less than one year to live. Today, she not only alive but as healthy as she's ever been in her entire life. She says that in the arena of illness/wellness, disease can be seen as a disturbance, an opportunity to evolve to a higher level of complexity. Disease, no matter how devastating it may seem, need not be viewed as negative. Evy's amazing and inspiring story can help all of us overcome illness and difficult time.  Evy's story
