Malia Litman - volunteer queen of hearts

MS patient and activist Malia Litman’s column “A Passover Prayer of Gratitude and Hope” for Thrive Global reflects on the miracles she has experienced on her astonishing 5-year journey since she was first treated for MS at Hadassah Hospital. A Registered Nurse and a practicing trial lawyer in Dallas, TX, Malia volunteers in the Pediatric Unit at Dallas Children’s Hospital.

In her column, Malia relates how she has been renewed in body and spirit and now has a sense of joy and wonder that she had never previously experienced. Watch video of Malia dancing at her son’s wedding just two weeks after her last treatment! This column is part of Hadassah’s ongoing series of articles in Thrive Global, the media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.
