The Alpine Township Historical Committee held its monthly meeting Sunday at the Community Building. Guest speaker was local author Margaret M. McCarthy, a long time Alpine Township resident currently living in Marne. Margaret penned the book "Adam's Journey" and spoke about Adam's struggles with a rare disease called Mitochondial Disease. Even more so, the book is about the effect on the family in dealing with treatment as well as looking after the welfare of Adam's five siblings. Adam's Journey tells of a miracle with the the credit going to faith and prayer. Using comments written on Adam's Care Pages on the Internet to help reconstruct the events, Margaret's book offers hope to many dealing with rare diseases.
