EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
I was born on Feb 18 2006. I did everything like I was to do at the right ages. I played sports and was part of a dance team. I loved playing at the park with my bike. On September 22nd 2014 my life changed and still no why knows why. I had gotten up that morning like every other day. I went school played with my friends,and helped with dinner. Later in the evening my back started to hurt. My mom didn't think anything about it and told me to go take my shower before bed. As I was starting the shower my legs starting hurting and I sat down. Once they didn't hurt anymore I tried to stand up but I couldnt. I was rushed to the hospital and put though a bunch of test. Later that night the doctors told my mom and dad I had what's called transverse myelitis not only does it not allow me to walk but I have to have a bowel program that my mom has to help me with I have to calf myself to be able to pee every three hours I take a lot of medicine because of the softening are the mile on my spinal cord I form scoliosis. I had to be in the hospital for over 2 months. I do weekly ot and pt. For a while things were so ok but as I'm growing I'm starting to feeling alot of pain all the time I use a wheelchair full time. I have to have help getting dressed, going to school carrying books, I can't just go outside and play with my friends anymore or go swimming without somebody there to help me it's tough but I'm fighting and I know that one day with the help of donations and research somebody will find a cure and help me walk and have a normal life again so please make your donation my life and my parents life become a little more easier.
