Overcoming MS, Parkinson's, Stroke, Diabetes, Heart Disease – much more!
Hello, my name is Anna York. I have recovered from severe disability caused by multiple sclerosis, a disease I have had for over 45 years. Once I was so weak I used a wheelchair and scooter. I could not stand for more than five minutes and could not even sit up straight for more than fifteen minutes. Now I am healthy and active, and, even though I still have some disability, I enjoy a vibrant life with my family and in service to others. My experience has helped me understand that each day is a gift and that my health is something I must cherish and continually nurture.
During the years of my illness, I longed to share with others who were also struggling, to gain their wisdom and to receive encouragement to keep on rising in the face of seemingly impossible odds. This website is part of my dream to help others find community and strength to live, grow, heal and hope for a brighter future. Like I did.
This is a community for those who want to Rise UP!
Rise UP! above what you think your mind, body and spirit can achieve!
My own recovery helps me envision a world where everyone has an opportunity to heal and live a healthy, fulfilling life.
Crippled becomes whole,
Crooked becomes straight,
Empty becomes full,
Old becomes new,
Rough places become paths for the feet.
The Bible and The Tao Te Ching, trans. By Addiss and Lombardo (adapted)
Rising UP! intends to foster a spirit of hope and empowerment to search out ways we can heal and become whole in body, mind and spirit.
