Linda Schuberth

Strength to Keep Going

Every time Campbell visits Linda Schuberth, she feels as though she's getting a gift. Schuberth, 56, is suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease. As an occupational therapist who specializes in swallowing disorders in children, she is losing her own ability to swallow. And the Baltimore woman, who used to compete in triathlons, is confined to a wheelchair, her limbs stiff and useless.

Campbell is struck by the irony of that. Yet Schuberth perseveres, with yoga, pool therapy, and a specially equipped stationary bicycle. "What she's doing is so amazing," Campbell says. "She's inspiring."
