A DREAM DATE TO REMEMBER
It was a scene of tender love and care – a precious moment in life witnessed by just a few, when a simple, but special, dream was granted.
From the day she was born, Melissa Schmid, daughter of Kate and Mark Houg of Deer River, has endured numerous attacks to her body. The scary list of health ailments, infection and disease that has plagued the young Grand Rapids woman is more than someone even three-times her age may never expect to live through. Yet, at just 22 years old, Melissa has weathered all of the storms – and survived with a smile on her face and a feisty independence that has others at awe.
