Recovering Runner


In this season of thanksgiving, one of the most thankful people we know is a pharmacist from Carmel, a long-distance runner who suddenly found herself paralyzed from the waist down with a rare medical condition. This is the story of Melanie Brown – and the power of medicine, hope and determination.
