 Very Thankful This Thanksgiving – College Professor Gets Relief from Debilitating Disease | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:10:10

By Richard Hunt After a relatively new and very delicate surgical procedure for Parkinson’s disease, Bill Ragle says his wife has “got her husband back, for the time being at least.” The operation was to enable Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), where small holes are drilled into his skull and electrodes are placed deep in his brain to provide a constant electrical charge. The results have been remarkable. Bill can once again strum a guitar and his voice is stronger. “I can walk normally. I’m actually playing tennis.” He explains it’s not a Parkinson’s cure, but a “reprieve.” This is not only a story of modern medicine, but of solid, trusting faith in God. We invite you to share in this journey.
