“My children and grandchildren give me hope and also my belief in a higher power. My medical team, educating myself and being vigilant about my own health. The new medication, the different organizations that are adamantly listening and learning about the wants and needs for patients, help me believe that l can live a long, productive life.
“Even though there is no cure, that no longer scares me. Knowing that the medical world is aware that people like me exist and they are consistently learning, researching and investing in more medical education and ways for me to live a longer, healthier life.”
