"After serving in the military and owning my own business, I got sick. I lost everything through my illness; HALI taught me self respect, pride, taking care of myself. HALI helps people strive and thrive. HALI showed me it’s not over, there’s always some way, somehow, someway. HALI helped me get my life back!"
