It was year of the Ice Bucket Challenge when MaryFran Peterlin-Kolp was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. A top college athlete and having earned a Ph. D in Exercise Physiology she was never afraid to rise up to a challenge and she decided that she would do "whatever it takes" to try to find a cure. MaryFran always had a strong Catholic Faith to rely on, great family support and would soon see how a small Northern Michigan town would rally around her. She would explore not just conventional western medicine but alternative treatments and therapies, diets, and of course rely on her faith to guide her. Using her positive attitude she takes us on her ALS journey with the belief that God chose her so that others could be spared with the hope that maybe she could help find a cure. You will laugh, cry and be amazed at how one woman could have such a lasting impact on a community and how that community helped to care for her. MaryFan will show you that all you need is faith, family, and some "Frantabulous Friends" to live a happy life.
