Best Hero This Week
Every week, I’m convinced we’ve used our best hero. And every week, someone sends me a new that reminds me why I love this project so much. There are heroes everywhere. And the moment you need your life put back in perspective, well…here’s Jadie…
Sent by her father
Her Story: My daughter was diagnosed with Lupus which was brought on by a tonsillectomy and a bought of mononucleosis when she was 15. It took a battery of doctors and a laundry list of misdiagnoses to find it and she lost, literally, a year of her life to recovery. She’s now 17 and has spent the last year catching up in school, getting her drivers license and generally just finding her life again. She’s done it all with grace, commitment and a giant sense of humor. Along the way she has taught me about patience, strength, determination, sacrifice and perspective. She worries about us and how we’re doing, and that’s why she’s my hero.
