Vicki’s the Cover Girl on Faith Magazine

As you can see above and on the right-hand column, Vicki is the “Cover Girl” on Faith Magazine’s November, 2010, issue. The cover story inside the magazine is a great story about Vicki, informative and entertaining. At the end of this post I have a link to the article’s online version, and to an online video that Faith Magazine recorded the day they took photos for the article. In the video, Vicki candidly talks about the ways FTD has affected her and how she lives her life with the disease. Vicki has dedicated her life to the Church and to communications, as this article and video clearly show.

Vicki and I are so appreciative of Faith Magazine for helping her tell her story – which is not only Vicki’s story, but also the story of many people suffering from this “hidden” disease.

Read the article and watch the video! I’m sure you’ll be glad you did.

      Bless ya, Friends for ever.

  1. Thanks Jim for helping me with all this. Poor thing you don’t even get paid. But I bet you’ve got a big stack of coins awaiting you by the pearly gates. ;o) Blessings, V

    Vicki lost contact with you over the years. Talked to Sue LaChance-Karr and she told me where to find you on Facebook. If you get this let me know. God bless, Darla

    1. Hi, Darla. Because of computer problems and her health problems, I don’t think Vicki has had a chance to reply to your note. I’ll pass it on to her again if she doesn’t.

    How is Vicki?

  2. I recently visited Vicki and she’s doing very well in some ways. Her speech and ability to communicate verbally have improved quite a bit since she was given her puppy, Beannie, at the beginning of the year. Beannie’s full of energy and she talks to him a lot. On the down side, Vicki’s computer had problems again earlier this year, and by the time it was fixed a few weeks later, she felt overwhelmed about “catching up” with her online communication. Since her main interaction with most other people has been online for a year and a half, I hope she can slowly start up again.

    The disease is progressing and Vicki is slowing down. But she’s still there and we spent good time together.

    Thanks for asking, Fran.
