A bloggers note

February 18.  Typically this is a very symbolic day to me.  14 years ago on this day I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I battled blindness, numb legs and A long nasty list of issues for 6 years. Since then I have been doing as much as possible to better my health, my life and provide inspiration and support for others dealing with their own battles.

Each year on that day I do all I can to thank people for their love and support but it is impossible to ever repay those who have supported me. This year that day has come and gone with out mention from me until now and it is simply because I unconsciously have put my worries aside so that I can pour my love and support into efforts of a helping a beautiful 9 year old girl. I simply forgot about me! I actually am delighted that I did forget. It means that the life of the 9 year old that I've been apart of for the past 7+ years is more important than any worry about myself. Some may call that being a parent, I call it unconditional love. 

I'm blessed to be apart of her life. I've never asked for anything in return for my love and support because it's not important. What's important to me is the safety and health of my family, however unconventional it may be.

Through these now 100 + days of Anna's journey, she has tought me so much about being brave. I learn from her example everyday and it is the catalyst for doing anything that I can to help her. Simply doing what's needed to help save her life. 

Some of you have heard me say this before, "I would comb the earth for that beautiful little girl if it is needed" I love you Anna and Always will no matter how you feel about me.
