My Story

While I am just a grandma with just one daughter and just one granddaughter, my story comes from a position of support rather than my own story of dealing with a disease. As a parent and grandparent I offer as much help as I can, but it still not the same as dealing directly 24/7 with a patient or as a patient. My heart often hurts when I see the struggles that my daughter and her family deal with every day.

My Motivation and Inspiration

My motivation is my daughter and granddaughter.
