While several years of tremendous pain, multiple surgeries, daily physical therapy, and the ever-present risk for serious setbacks take a toll on all aspects of Sheila’s life, her grit to go on, her passion for life, and the above-and-beyond love of her “village” of friends encourage everyone she encounters.
