In College I became an All-American in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters, and later joined Team USA, an Olympic development running program.  In 2004 I was the youngest competitor to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials. Running gave me so much joy, and I was thankful to be able to compete.

When I was 24 however, I became extremely ill and within a year had to quit running altogether.  I was crushed that I had to stop doing what I was so passionate about. Most days I was not able to get out of bed and for several years struggled to walk around the block. I was diagnosed with a metabolic muscle disease and my condition quickly became disabling. For several years I sought care from OVER A 100 DOCTORS, none of whom could find a way to improve my worsening illness.

That is, until I met Dr. Todd Schragen early in 2011.  I hadn’t run for years, so after several appointments I was thrilled just to be able to stand and walk with less pain.  However, Dr. Schragen did not stop there and was committed to helping me gain my life back. Because of his continued treatment and expertise, I have been able to start running for the first time in 6 years. Last month i was even able to compete in a half marathon.

I am so thankful for the incredible care I received from Dr. Schragen at All Pro Health as it enabled me run, something I never thought I would be able to do again.

Thank You All-Pro Health
