Story Summary

John and Janet Smith’s loving marriage has spanned for 54 years. Their lives were changed forever when their middle son, Joe Smith, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 25 years ago.  John Smith had to have six-way bypass surgery and Janet Smith struggles with diabetes. Unable to properly care for their son, the couple placed him in a nursing home when he was confined to a wheelchair 10 years ago. It is the love they share and their faith in God that binds this family together that transcends disease and hardship.
