About Chris Didonna

Growing up, my heart became damaged. After moving away to college, I met a friend who I could trust. He told me who I really was, even though I struggled to believe it. Through the love of this friend & others in Orlando, I set out on a journey of healing that has forever changed my life. You can connect with me on Twitter and Insta: @cldidonna.

Healing Begins With Risk

I went on an adventure last year that changed my life forever. You might have seen the short movie that my friends and I made about this journey.  It’s called Live Alive: The Film and you can watch it here or down below.

Is it Possible to Be Too Passionate?
