In 1999, a 49-year-old woman tended her garden outside of the Chicago suburban home she shared with her husband, daughter and pet dogs. Extended family lived close by. She had a job that she loved. Life didn’t get any better than this. One phone call changed everything.
A random blood test had just revealed that she had hepatitis C. She’d never heard of it before. Not only did she have it, but it had been swimming in her bloodstream for 30 years, contracted from a blood transfusion in 1969. Tests would reveal that her liver was engulfed in chronic active liver disease – almost cirrhotic. Hepatitis C in 1999 was a degenerative, often incurable and deadly disease. Something had to be done.
The only treatment at the time offered less than a 50% chance for cure and came with a plethora of nasty side effects. It was a yearlong regimen of chemotherapy that could trigger flu-like symptoms. And those patients who didn’t respond to this difficult protocol frequently found themselves immunocompromised when it was over and sicker than before. The “wonder drugs” were still a long way off.
While waiting 15 years for a cure, Labar Laskie took extraordinary measures – except the chemotherapy – to keep her symptoms at bay, calm her fears, and lift her spirits. Above the Din is her story.

In Stroke Recovery, Rebuilding Arm Movements, Tracy share illustrations of the many muscles in the body that participate in the movement of the arm and exercises. In many cases, stroke recovery patients do not receive enough physical therapy to help them reach the full potential in their stroke recovery. This leaves many stroke survivors seeking help from other sources, such as personal trainers, Pilates teachers, and other professionals in the fitness communities. Tracy believes when a survivor gains more knowledge of muscles and movement and why specific exercises need to be practiced, it leads to a stronger recovery. Did you know that the biceps and triceps muscles also attach at the scapula? The Scapula is the shoulder blade. Did you now that the chest muscles help move the arm and round the shoulder forward? Did you know that the nerves that transport the message for arm, hand and finger movements come out of the spinal cord at the upper back and neck vertebrae?
Unexplained throat swelling, pain, and nausea mark only the start of Summer's decade-long search for answers that spanned numerous hospitals and state lines. Her illness, at first believed by doctors to be a case of anxiety and a simple allergy, becomes worse after she is prescribed medications that continue to provoke reactions. Only after several rounds of bloodwork and tests is a tick-borne disease discovered-one of many that would continue to stump specialists and leave some questioning, "Are you sure this isn't all in your head?"
Through her own research and the help of support groups, Summer uncovers her true diagnosis: an immune condition not yet well known among the medical community. After years of surviving only on a limited number of foods and now in a wheelchair, she relies on her faith in God like never before and discovers an unexpected treatment option that just may change everything.
