Throughout life, we encounter many different people, however, only a few have the ability to make an impact to last a lifetime. There is one woman that has affected my life the most, and, and has helped make me the person I am today. She has been by my side since my first moments on this earth and nothing has changed since. She has always been there with me through thick and thin, the good and bad, I have all of the admiration and the respect for her in the world.
My mom is like a diamond, she is unbreakable and absolutely amazing. This lady has stuck through anything and everything that has happened. Back in 2005 when I was beginning to get sick, I was passing out in school while playing basketball. We were unsure on so many things like what was causing this, what was next and how to stop it. I had been in and out of the hospital so much it was ridiculous, and no doctor had an idea about what was going on. My family and I were nervous and paranoid all of the time not knowing when this was going to happen, somehow my mom managed to stay pretty sane about the issue.
Finally we got an answer from Texas Children’s hospital; they seemed to believe that I have a rare heart disease called left-ventricular non compaction. It was some pretty rough news to take in but it was better than being clueless, but I was taken out of basketball for the year and didn’t know if I would be playing again or not. Unfortunately they did not know of any treatment or medication to help. My mom went to work, she was on the internet day in and day out looking for something that could possibly help me. One day she took me to an iridologist who took pictures of my eyes and read them to me and my parents told us everything that was wrong and what I needed to do in order to fix the problem. From then on I didn’t have a problem for almost a year and a half.
Although my mom has a lot on her plate with two teenagers a husband and a dog she always found the time to help others. Volunteering...
