My Story

Alex and Lauren are amazing kids. Both of them have had to endure numerous medical procedures, testing and surgeries related to their mitochondrial disease. Their list of medical conditions is large but that's not what I want you to see when you look at them, or read about them. I want you to see children who are happy and are choosing to live life to it's fullest. They both attend school and are both smart and funny. In our house, we are always laughing as laughter has a way of easing the heartache. Each day we chose to let them live. My hope is that when you read this blog, you are able to see what I see when I look at my kids. I see children who were put here on this earth for a reason far greater than I can ever imagine. They are touching people in ways that I could never dream. They are children with dreams, hopes and aspirations. These kids are already doing big things in this world and I am proud to call them my own. For more information about mitochondrial disease go to www.umdf.org
