A story of faith and will to be sure. But one of triumph over extreme adversity, of family love, of friendship, of unshakeable inner strength. It begins with a child who was naturally optimistic, outgoing, intelligent and active. Drew Clayborn was into everything good—sports, theatre, music…life!

Lanzisera, Ph.D., ABPP of Henry Ford Behavioral Health who offers clinical perspectives.
