As all of us know the debilitating effects Fibromyalgia can have on our bodies. I want to tell you about the grace, inspiration, and love that one women is having on the world.
The story moved me and gave me hope. Though her condition is not Fibromyalgia it will relate to you on so many levels, and maybe give you the same feeling of hope it has offered me.
Diane Dike was a average 23 year old enjoying life as we so often see, when one morning she awoke to a horror her mind was not yet ready for. She could not stand, her feet were twice their normal size, purple in color and no one could tell her why.
[Sounding familiar yet] for two ½ years Diane went through a battery of tests to finally determine see had a rare disease- Cryoglobulinemia. They told her there was no cure for this condition.
At first she was depressed as we all know that feeling. She couldn’t understand why this was happening to her. With god’s grace, Diane was able to create hope and inspiration for millions in her situation.
Second Chance with Saving Grace was born. Diane Dike is an advocate for those who are suffering not just with debilitating disease but every type of suffering known to man. Second Chance with Saving Grace, visits orphanages, hospitals, rescue centers for animals, prisons,and helps provide education and inspiration on environmental issues.
