Nancy began her passion for this topic early in her young adult life, during her many years with an unexplained illness. The experience drove her more and more deeply into her own spirituality and internal resources. The fruits of her reflection, prayer, integration, reading, and seeking became the ingredients of her presentation on the “Spirituality of Illness”
