For someone with Tourette Syndrome, the thought of needing to twitch without the ability to move can be a frightening one. But, after being diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), that became the reality for Joe Wions. The prognosis for ALS is a two- to three-year death sentence. With unbreakable will and persistence, Joe chose a different fate. Left with a hopeless situation in the eyes of doctors, he worked through the agony of Tourette’s, faced the daunting fear of ALS, and set out on a quest for alternatives. Determined to find a cure, Joe endured harrowing moments of decline, but eventually stumbled upon keys that unlocked healing in both his body and his mind, and brought forth perspective on how to live fully, regardless of one's limitations.
