Patient Leader

I’m just a 29 year old trying to help others find the courage to make a rope from thread. I have a 9 year old son & he’s the best little nurse ever. He should be the one nominated, not me! He’s always willing to help when I have bag leaks. He helps me clean up when I spend a night with my head in a trash can. He puts my meds in my tube when I can’t & sings to me if I’m in pain. He helps me pick out the rad socks I wear & ship all over the world! I stopped wearing plain socks as a kid in & out of the hospital. The fun ones made the days brighter. I’ve mailed out over 350 pairs of socks all over the world in the last year. No one is ever alone in their fight.
