At age 15 Lidwina was ice-skating when she fell and broke her rib, leading to a development of gangrene, and her paralysis. Despite her immense pain, she gained fame as a healer as she experienced visions in her bed. After years of suffering and loss of body parts, she passed away at the age of 53.
