When the same doctor who had cared for Marcia as a child began caring for her own children, he was in awe that she was even alive, let alone raising a family. He remembered her as a 13 year old 7th grader in 1956, when he had diagnosed her with TB meningitis. Marcia recovered at Firland TB Sanatorium, where she made a lifelong friend and underwent the arduous work of relearning how to read, write and walk.
In Marcia's words...
Marcia, Snohomish County
