Just three weeks after having their first baby, Rachel was diagnosed with a rare spinal cord tumor that threatened her life. The tumor and surgery to remove it left her as a quadriplegic. She and her husband, Taylor, survived months in hospitals, near death, and their return home accompanied by work to regain their family life and movement in Rachel’s body. They will share truths about how to view our suffering in light of the Gospel.
