“It makes me sad to know he couldn’t see me on our wedding day, or when we were engaged, or when I told him I loved him for the first time. But love has overcome all of these sad truths.”
“I’ve had challenges bigger than running the Boston Marathon and losing my eyesight. When I dream big, when I am persistent and don’t give up, I create a life that’s rich, peaceful, and full of JOY.”
“After my tonsils were removed, my mom woke me up to check on my throat and give me some water. I was completely unresponsive. They didn’t know if I’d be able to breathe, talk, walk, or think ever again.”
With having a moderate case of progeria and knowing I aged faster, I was terrified I would never find someone to love me for who I was.
