A TOUGH BUT UPLIFTING DAY
Any reader of this blog may know that my daughter has MS. Saturday was the MS walk which could be ironically named. This has put me into a tailspin to be sure. But I have been a pansy compared to my daughter. Growing up she was a near national level soccer player. To have this amount of athleticism put in this jeopardy is hard for me to accept.
My daughter on the other hand is a rock. She has accepted this diagnosis and chosen to fight it tooth and nail, just as she did her opponents on the soccer field. She still plays soccer several times a week. I wish I had her courage. She is a special education teacher and works hard everyday without giving in.
When you think of people, remember these heroes who fight this insidious disease everyday. It has no cure, YET. We will walk for the cure for as long as I can walk.
I have to, my hero demands that I be strong.
