Strength comes from within, often deeply buried beneath years of misfortune. Gail’s life begins with a difficult childhood and years of abuse. Her first marriage failed before finding happiness with her second husband and father of her two children, before he died suddenly. Drink became a coping mechanism, before seeking help and embarking on a journey of self-discovery and gradual path to self-love. She now speaks out to encourage others to find rehab. Gail is part of the Rochdale Petrus Community.
