On Friday May 1st at 1:30 pm Wisconsin author Gary Beyer will be speaking about living fully and maintaining hope through difficult times. A Neenah native, Gary has been dealing with a rare and disabling inflammatory muscle disease called Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) for years, having been diagnosed in January of 2008. His book, “You Must Answer This,” addresses how he’s been able to stay positive and live fully and how his good and bad life experiences have helped shape his positive outlook. In his book he states it like this, “Spirituality makes up the foundation for our day to day existence, but I believe our basis for hope is truly a bit more complex. This is because our activity or inactivity is involved with completing the equation." By discussing the strategies that have helped him live well with chronic pain, Gary’s mission is to help others discover what will help them through their difficulties in life.
