What an informative talk by Laura Burke. She gave me a better understanding of the illness. Her courage and strength are an inspiration for all!!! Brenda

Thanks so much for this. Laura gives us a rare window into something that is so mysterious and jarring to outsiders. We all have our moments, our pain that comes with no reason, but we tend to shut it away; to express it would be to give it fuel. To hear about something of this magnitude happening to an intelligent young woman who can so clearly let us know what goes on behind the scenes is a real gift.
