'What inspired me to become a chiropractor'
“When I was an infant suffering from severe asthma, doctors told my parents there was nothing more they could do. They gave me one month to live. My parents took me to a chiropractor. Within a week, the asthma was gone. I now dedicate myself to helping others through chiropractic.”— Donald J. Baune, D.C., Palmer College class of 1979
