Unbroken is a hope-filled story of a mother and a daughter, and their unwavering grip for life; reminding us that the human spirit is unbreakable. Grounded in their faith, together they battle a life-threatening disease that would forever change the course of their lives. In this chronicle you will hear these warriors’ roar, holding on to life and God's promises. Dr. Egli Colón Stephens digs into memory weaving stories of her cultura, familia, and tradiciones that armed her with the tools to survive the challenges of life. Instinctually, she began to write about the journey God had brought her from, and a decade later, here it is. Like life, which is not linear, this story takes many shifts and unexpected turns. Facing the biggest challenge to date, through her daughter’s life challenge, Egli learns what it means to be courageous, resilient and relentless while leaning on her community for prayers.Their story has over 53,000 views on Telemundo and over 32,000 visits on their CaringBridge blog. In 2015, Egli had her article published on NBC News, and Natalia Harris has been featured on the NY Daily News, The Morning Show in Australia, The Sun in UK, Mirror, UK, Vivala, ABC News, DNAinfo, Refinery29, Women’s Health, Us Weekly and Vogue.
