Leaning into the Light
Since 1999, Sheila Dembowski has been diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease, Myasthenia Gravis, and with fibromyalgia, both of which sent her and those around her on a journey of both challenges and truimphs. Along the way, Sheila also experienced the loss of a close friend to cancer and witnessed the illness and death of her father to dementia. But she also discovered that life is not without miracles, as her story will show, including the birth of her son, despite her health issues.
Her memoir is a reflection of how her life was changed by chronic illnesses and how the support of those around her and her faith in God help her to succeed in spite of her difficulties. Told with sincerity, Sheilas story will inspire others to understand that the only thing in life we can really control is the reaction we have to what happens to us.
