I’m often asked, “Why is a support group so important for an individual who has a physical challenge to overcome?” The only way to get courage is to face your fears and overcome them. The benefits of courage are success, happiness and bravery. Most people run away from fear. Successful people run to fear and do the things they fear the most and overcome the challenges that most people see as impossible. Support groups like Courage to Shine enable people with challenges to see that they’re not alone. The group also allows people to meet others with the same conditions, so they can learn and help each other to overcome their problems.
