LEWISTON — How to overcome physical and emotional challenges will be explored at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at Lifetree Café, 1919 Lisbon Road.

The program, “Choosing Resilience,” features a screening of the inspiring true story of Staff Sgt. Travis Mills, who lost both his arms and legs as the result of an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan.

“I was told by my occupational and physical therapists that they were there to help, but whatever I put in was what I would get out. The sympathy card wasn’t ever played, and I think that was key for my recovery,” says Mills.

The film shows an intimate look at the daily inner and outer struggles of wounded veterans and the difficult rehabilitation processes they face. Participants will be challenged to look at the ways they deal with their own personal trials.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual setting.
