* Carrie Dansby: A War On Epilepsy *
Carrie spend every day fighting a potentially life-threatening battle with a monster called epilepsy. She states that some days she win and some days she lose.
"Despite everything epilepsy throws at us, we don’t give up. We fight long and hard. We cry when we have to, but we grab our armor and get back up. That’s one thing about epilepsy – it makes us warriors. To fight a disability like this, we have to be. Epilepsy may knock us down, but it can’t keep us there. With your love and support, we will always be able to get back up. "--Carrie Dansby

* Are doctors to blame for the prescription drug addiction epidemic? *
It’s estimated that 54-million teens nationwide are abusing prescription drugs, according to the Michigan Prescription Drug and Opioid Abuse Task Force’s 2015 report. It’s a deadly trend doctors are blaming on a lack of resources and poor communication.
Regardless of age, social class, or race, patients are getting hooked on prescription drugs at alarming rates. It’s something that happened to Tom Cole. He lives in Ionia with his wife, Sarah. Tom and Sarah run a program in Ionia that helps those struggling with addiction. It’s called ‘True Freedom’. They often spend time wandering the city streets, praying over those who need it most.
