Patiently Awakened – A Column by Teresa Wright-Johnson

Teresa I. Wright-Johnson is a Congenital Heart Disease Survivor and a Multiple Sclerosis Warrior. Diagnosed in November of 2014 with MS, Teresa relies on her faith, family and friends. As a person with Chronic Illnesses, Teresa has learned the importance of being both patient in nature and present in each moment. It has also led her to boldly live her truth and walk in her purpose. Teresa’s column will focus on her personal lessons and experiences with MS. Teresa hopes her column will inspire and encourage others to stand in the midst of adversity and to believe that even in the course of illness, we can find greater meaning to our existence and use our light to shine through our darkest hour.
