MaishaEdit

Alipokuwa na umri wa miaka 15, Lidwina alianguka na kuvunjika ubavu akiwa anacheza penye barafu. Badala ya kupona, alizidi kulemaa maisha yake yote, mpaka akapooza mwili mzima isipokuwa mkono wa kushoto.[1][2]

Lidwina alishika mfululizo saumu na sifa yake kama mtakatifu mponyaji ilizidi kuvuma.[3] Maafisa wa mji wake, Schiedam, wametuachia tamko rasmi la kwamba aliacha kabisa kula na kupata usingizi.[1][4]

Lidwina alifariki akiwa na umri wa miaka 53.
