Growing up, I noticed that my cousins, Kat and Morgan, weren't able to do some of the things that I could. Tasks like walking and talking were difficult. The disease got progressive with age, ultimately causing them to not be able to function without assistance. Now, they must be fed and bathed; taken care of like a newborn.
Through all of this, my aunt, uncle, and cousin (sister to Kat and Morgan) have remained so strong and loving. Some people give up, some send their kids away, but they have done their best at giving their girls the best life they can have, everyday, and remaining positive through it all.
