For several months, Dorothy Shell’s entire body was paralyzed. She couldn’t talk. She couldn’t even move her eyelids! The people around her had no way to know whether she could understand what they were saying.

“But could I ever understand!” Dorothy says.

In Sent Home to Die, you’ll read Dorothy’s own account of her struggle with porphyria, a rare blood disease about which very little was known when her case was first diagnosed, but the treatment of which she has helped to pioneer.

One  night God met Dorothy in her hospital room and gave her hope. Dorothy did not give up her faith in God just because her hope was deferred.
