Overview

"Harrowing" . . . "Gripping" . . . "A medical miracle!"   How do you live when all you can feel is pain?   The best word to describe Rachel Carter's life was "fearless." She rode a motorcycle in high school, she worked in a cannery in Alaska at 20, and then backpacked solo through Europe. When she finally "settled down," she married Josh and pursued a career in sales.   She lived a picture-perfect life—then Multiple Sclerosis caught up with her. After two years of rapid decline, Rachel found herself lying on the floor, writhing in agony, hoping to die.   In Enduring the Cure, Rachel Carter shares how she overcame her struggle with the debilitating disease. It's a story of pain, decline, an experimental treatment, and healing.   But most of all, it's a story of inspiration, determination, and hope for anyone who has suffered a debilitating disease or diagnosis.
