Miraculous Changes For Woman Helped by FOX 26

Posted:

When Christina Gundlach turned to Fox 26 Investigates last fall, time wasn't on her side.

"They had given her 6 months to 2 years to live," Christina's mother, Connie Woods said. "So we were running against the clock."

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis Christina got 866 dollars a month from social security. But that meant she made too much money to qualify for medicaid.

"It was so sorry you're disqualified, that's it that's the end of it," Woods said.

Last September Christina was going downhill fast. She couldn't walk and weighed only 64 pounds.

"It's hard, it's devastating that I can't get help to prolong my life," Christina told Fox 26 Investigates at the time. "I'm a family person and I'm not ready to leave my family."

Christina's life and outlook today is a far cry from where she was 8 months ago.

"I wasn't even walking in the walker I was barely getting in the wheelchair so it's way different,"a chocked up Christina said. "I'm so sorry I wasn't expecting to cry."

What's behind the miraculous change? Fox 26 viewers.

"It was through your story, your original story that people came forth and made suggestions." Christina's mother said.

One viewer pointed us to Legacy Community Health Care Services which helped Christina get medicaid and medicine that slows down the progression of her M.S.

'I don't think about dying anymore," Christina said. "I just don't it never crosses my mind."

Now Christina thinks about the day she can walk on her own. As far as she's concerned she's living proof of the power of prayers.
