Just weeks after Holly gave birth to her first child – Marilyn’s first grand baby – their world came crashing down. What was meant to be an exciting time in their lives suddenly turned to tragedy, when Holly was paralyzed from the neck down on life support with GBS, a rare autoimmune disorder. Unable to speak, move, or hold her newborn daughter, Holly endured horrific physical and emotional pain for months. But with incredible perseverance and her mom by her side, she learned how to breathe, talk, walk and hold her daughter again. Holly and Marilyn found their strength to come back from the brink and overcome every obstacle they faced.
Holly & her mother Marilyn share their story of the faith and courage it took to climb out of the darkest valley. They share their experience of survival & perseverance, to inspire others to find the strength within to overcome any obstacles life may throw at them. They speak, to bring awareness on the rare life threatening condition called GBS, and most of all, to find the hidden gifts and blessings within tragedy.
Marilyn and Holly are a dynamic mother-daughter speaking duo, who deliver a powerful, personal, and inspiring keynote address.
