For the past 25 years, Cynthia Locke Day has been known as

the lady who wears sparkles in her hair.” Once the Vice

President of IDAK Corp, and a supervisor of 27 medical

facilities, Cynthia’s life became consumed by alcoholism and

her marriage ended in divorce. Within two years, Cynthia was

unemployable. Down to her last $10, she happened to glance

down at the sidewalk and there, in the hardened cement, was

scrawled the message: “Expect a miracle!”
