California
My goal is to push my limits (physical, emotional, mental) and encourage others to do the same.  At age 17 I was devastated with the diagnosis of a rare disease called Friedreich's ataxia (FA).  What the heck is Friedreich's ataxia and what would it mean to me for the rest of my life?  Over the next couple years my family and I found out that FA is a progressive...

My name is Chris Hempel. In October 2007, my husband and I received life-threatening news about our cholesterol - but our lives weren't in danger. We learned that we were born with a defect in a critical cholesterol gene and that our precious six-year-old identical twin daughters, Addi and Cassi, inherited a double mutation - both genetic cholesterol defects. For many months, I'd known...

Georgetown, Texas
Erica Stauffer My childhood was filled with country meadows, strife, and lessons that have both benefited me and haunted me during my adult life. I grew up in a family of 6, among them two sisters and a brother. Although we fought like cats and dogs, I love them all and am a better person today for having grown up with them. I have struggled with depression and anxiety since the age of 15 and...

 I am married and between us we have four children ages 11-6 ( two boys and two girls!)  I was diagnosed in 2006 with Progressive-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis and in 2008 with Rheumatoid Arthritis. It does make life rather challenging at times especially with four children, but for the most part I don't let it slow me down. Don't get me wrong I have my down days or weeks even,...

I have lived with fibromyalgia for about 40 years. I live in a coastal city in Eastern Canada subjected to dampness and difficult weather conditions which aggravate fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.

Salt Lake Valley, Utah
I'm a 74-year old runner, and I've been running for over 37 years, including four marathons, and have had only one injury due to running. That injury happened in 2007 and was due to not giving my body enough rest. I had reduced my mileage while I was increasing my LSD pace. Then I started increasing my distance but made too big of weekly increments and was injured. Because of my age, I have...

I was born on August 8th 1991. Two or more weeks premature. I spent the first three and a half years of my life in a Romanian orphanage, on the third year one of the caretakers attempted to kill me by throwing me down the stairs for complaining that she was stealing food. I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury with skull fracture. I remember waking up in the hospital. Because of the premature birth...
