It Takes Hope
Start: Feb 27, 2018 - End: Dec 31, 2018
I was diagnosed with a degenartive, neuro-muscular disease in my twenties called Friedreich’s Ataxia. Although my life is continually facing losses, I am humbled by the relationships I have gained. One of those gifts is in the community of FARA (Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance). It is my hope to do my part to raise awareness and the funds necessary to eliminate this awful disease. FARA is dedicated to the pursuit of scientific research leading to treatments and a cure for Friedreich’s Ataxia.
This past January, I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Although my journey on this earth is not how I imagined it, I long to live life battle ready. It’s my hope for this campaign to spread awareness for the dreaded disease of Friedreich’s Ataxia as well as adopting the hashtag battle ready, as we each fight through our own challenges.
