Living With . . .


One day everything changes. Getting a diagnosis of a lifelong illness changes the way we feel about our bodies, our lives and our death. Some are resilient and life begins anew. Some are not so fortunate.

We hear several personal stories about accepting this new normal and living a full life. We’ll also speak with Dr. Guy Fried, Chief Medical Officer Magee Rehabilitation Hospital about the journey patients take after trauma.
