S4 Ep 24 A Running Miracle
Show Notes

Donna Campisi is a driven and passionate woman. What has made her that way? It would be fair to say, that having a stroke at the age of 7, being diagnosed with diabetes at 14 AND being told you were unlikely to talk or walk again, would have something to do with it. Donna could have accepted her circumstances and be living a very different life today. Instead, with determination and ongoing support from her parents, hospital staff, allied health professionals and others, Donna became known as the Miracle Girl. 

Find out how Donna defied the odds to walk and talk, run a 42km marathon and go on to become a writing coach, keynote speaker, podcaster and author of 4 inspirational books.
