My mom just happened to be visiting me from Japan when my accident happened.  She left her old life behind, never looking back, to care for me.  My dad and brother stayed in japan and my incredible mother has been my rock.  Now, my brother is in Boston for college and my dad’s been transferred to Hong Kong.  I see my dad every 2-3 months, but it is extra special when we get to spend our birthday together on October 10th.

My parents continue to live apart so that my dad can have a job that provides me with the very best care available to me.  In unfortunate circumstances, such as mine, I could not feel more fortunate.  I could not have been blessed with a better family.  I am forever grateful.
