Before Thanksgiving 2019, Mike diPenna was a healthy and athletic businessman. No one could have imagined that he would fall ill with a bacterial infection in his blood and meningitis. This rare combination created numerous mini-strokes in many regions of his brain. Mike woke up after being in a coma and has been rebuilding his life ever since. During the past year, Mike has been relearning how to walk and use his body. In this episode, he and his wife Jodi share their story of determination, faith, and strength.

Thanks Roni for giving my parents a chance to tell their story. Coming up on the year anniversary of the event, it really helped me to realize how far my Dad has come in a year, even if the steps seem small day to day. I'm very proud to call them my parents :) They are so strong!!!
