Suzanne Rood serves as the Worship Coordinator at Panton Community Baptist Church and as Choral Director for the Addison County Gospel Choir in Vermont. She also blogs, teaches piano lessons, and loves to get on her hands and knees in the flower garden. Diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) at age fifteen, she continues to walk with the aid of leg braces and a cane, holding tightly to her husband’s arm and the unmoving faithfulness of God.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is not a tooth disease, but a hereditary sensory and motor neuropathy that affects feet and legs, hands and arms, sometimes more. The confusing name is credited to the three physicians who first identified it in 1886, Jean-Martin Charcot, Pierre Marie, and Howard Henry Tooth. It is one of the most common inherited nerve disorders, affecting an estimated 1 in 2,500 people in the United States and 2.6 million people worldwide.
