Every once in a while, you come across an individual who rocks your world. They challenge you to ponder life's most challenging questions and push you to be the very best you can be. They teach to persevere and encourage you to set the world on fire; to make a great change and be that person that the world looks to do great things. They are there for you when no one else is and they understand situations that few others can. It is impossible to repay those people who have that incredible impact on your life. However, when I handed the hearing aids that provided me access to a world of sound to one of my most influential teachers, I knew the gift of hearing and my success in life would be the best way to repay him for his hard work over the last 4 years. It has been a year since these pictures were taken. A year that he has had access to optimal sound and it is a day that I will never forget.

I am a 20 year old junior at the college of my dreams. I am studying Emergency Medicine and Communication Rhetoric and minoring in the Administration of Justice and National Preparedness and Emergency Management certificate. At some point, I want to go and get my paramedic certification when my health allows. I have several chronic illnesses and this blog and website serves as a place for me to share my journey fighting CRPS and my other conditions. I hope that this blog can also serve as an outlet for raising awareness for rare diseases. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! Feel free to comment; I'd love to know what you think!
