became involved with MANNA
more than 15 years ago after recovering from a painful virus of the mouth.
The pain made it impossible to eat or drink and Steve
lost weight quickly.
agony and frustration mounted as no one could diagnose his
problem or provide a solution, even after multiple medical appointments.
Then a dentist and friend of the family heard about Steve's symptoms.
immediately knew exactly what was wrong and prescribed a medication that quickly healed Steve
, allowing him to return to a healthy weight.
tells this story, he
bargained with God during that painful week, vowing to do more good if he
lived up to that bargain and showed up here at MANNA
the very next week with a generous contribution.
focused solely on helping people with HIV/AIDS back then, and Steve
knew that people dying from AIDS had many complications, including difficulty eating.
