my wife is sick. she has a chronic illness called ehlers-danlos syndrome, and it has caused just about our entire marriage to have a unique and challenging struggle. 

she has gotten worse as time has gone along, but there is hope.

2 reasons for hope...

one: Jesus offers all of us hope.

two: there is a therapy that has helped her quite a bit, giving her of hope of slowing her disease. 

the first one cannot be taken away. the second one is a different story altogether.
