Shawna Lynne Grady is every bit a lady. Her gentle spirit and warm smile immediately put you at ease and her beautiful voice can easily bring a tear or two to the eyes. It did mine, this morning.
I asked her about her skin disease, about which she speaks openly. The disorder, called Ichthyosis, causes her skin to regenerate at four times the normal rate and, as a result, she doesn't sweat. That means it's easier for her body to overheat but says she doesn't have a problem with that because she simply pays attention to what her body's telling her and adapts accordingly.
