Born with Cerebral Palsy, orphaned before
the age of two, raised by great-grandparents, the first two years of
Marlene's life set the pace for the next several years. Because of the
Cerebral Palsy, her vision, speech and motor skills were greatly
affected. At the age of five, Marlene was finally able to walk with the
aid of braces and a walker.
In December of 1980, Marlene had seizures that lasted for two days. She
apparently hit her head, causing additional brain stem injuries. At 18,
Marlene was a quadriplegic, in a fetal position, barely able to
communicate. A total care nursing home was the only option for her life.
She was taken to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where doctors
assessed the damage of the latest brain injury. While there, God gave
her a vision that He was going to heal her on March 29, 1981 ... THREE
WEEKS AWAY! During an interesting and at times funny series of events,
the Lord was able to bring everything into line so that the miraculous
could happen ... exactly as seen in Marlene's vision.
Since that miraculous day Marlene has
told her story on TBN, the 700 Club, The Sid Roth show, as well as on
other television and radio shows and at many conferences and churches.
She has held healing seminars and has a burning desire to share the
message that God's healing power is for everyone. You don't need a
vision to experience it; it's a promise to those who believe. Mark
