Fiona Fifield of Trochu, AB was born in Alberta, Canada.
She has lived a fascinating life, triumphing after battling through recovery from alcoholism and disease. She fought and survived Marburg's Variant, a malignant form of multiple sclerosis that can be fatal. She is among the first in a handful of people after study trials in Canada to have a rare procedure called a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT). The procedure - although high risk itself, halted Fiona's disease from progressing further, ultimately saving her life.
She now belongs to a couple of Charity clubs where she donates much of her time. She has a mission to give back as much as she has received and lives each day with a profound appreciation for life.
