“Captivated by her story”

After reading her book Changed by the rain, I was captivated by her story. I invited Candice to speak to the members of Sudbury’s Fibromyalgia Support Group. The ladies were enthralled by her talk! She was warm, friendly, and brought a tremendously positive energy with her. Her story is heartbreaking and could easily leave one feeling incredible anger and bitterness. But Candice showed us that that even the worst experiences have something to teach us. She left us feeling like we could conquer and achieve anything! -Janet Lewis, coordinator, Sudbury Fibromyalgia Support Group

We hope to see her return to Timmins! Constable Rick Lemieux
