My daughter has this terrible disease and lives life to the fullest. As a parent you so want to take this away and fix her. She is my warrior my hero my best friend. For the most part she walks with her head held high and really tries to inform and educate all of those around her. This disease needs funding and get the urgency out there for a cure..for all living with this disease or loved ones bless you all and continue praying for a cure..a mother who has the most amazing daughter..I love you to the moon and back...
