Inspiration From Gwen van Rosmalen

At just 32 years old, Gwen van Rosmalen has endured more than most will face in a lifetime. She was only 28 years old when she first suffered a stroke. Tragedy then struck again a few months later.

Fortunately, the former runner refused to succumb to her tragic circumstances. It did not take her long to find a new passion for life. In the video below, she tells her incredibly inspiring story.
