I  was diagnosed with AS a year ago (2011), about 7 years after my first symptoms started. I am now 23 and looking forward to anything else life has to throw at me! My ultimate goal is to run a marathon someday. And by run I probably mean walk. And by marathon I probably mean a half marathon. And by someday I probably mean after I get bionic legs. But I really mean that it is my ultimate goal. Bring it, AS! I’ve got this in the bag – and by bag I probably mean my bag of meds.

One Response to “Allison”

  1. Dear Allison,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story.. A short one but a powerful one for sure.. you reminded me of my favorite quote.. that I keep on my wall..

    “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.” William Arthur Ward

    So when you are running that marathon be sure to wear your Faces of AS Band!

    Sincerely Cookie
