My cousin was born with kidney problems, which have since lead to severe mental and physical handicaps. He is now 33, but functions as an 8 year old would. My Aunt has spent her entire life dedicated to raising my cousin and providing him with the best life possible. Recently, his health has taken a turn for the worst. I spoke with my Aunt today, and while she was remains optimistic, I could hear her heart breaking through the phone. As a mommy-to-be, I admire her so much and realize (because of her) that good health is not something to take for granted. She is an inspiration to me and, although I don't know any of you, I believe you are all inspirations, as well. I just thought you should know.
