Rise Up and Walk
When ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) struck Kim Ordile, she was an educator to children and college-age adults. Now she communicates hope by writing with her eyes. Holding a BS in Liberal Studies from Corban University, she began her teaching career in a foreign country, where she learned to embrace the uncertainty of the unknown. Today, Kim again faces unfamiliar territory each day due to her illness. With courage and grace, she accepts the challenge and turns her obstacles into inspiration for others, helping them rise above whatever holds them down. Kim is married to Lou and has two children, Joseph and Jessa.
