He went on to graduate HS (was not supposed to live to 25) at age 30 and is still alive living assisted on his own with a job and a long term girlfriend .I never thought of him as different even tho he had 12 fingers and toes and had a hard time walking he is my cousin and my friend .If i can help future children not have to go threw what he did (he explained a lot of it to me when i was 18 and he was 25) and the pain he has had and does to this day its worth it to just fold because i can
He to this day even as a adult in his mid 40's is my hero for all that he has suffered and overcome to just LIVE
Thank you for sharing. It's very inspirational when you have someone truly dedicated. Some of us may not have "extreme case scenarios" of why we fold. And actually i'm not sure of a good way to put it. I'll just leave it as that.
For example, I have eczema. So what; it's genetic. That's not why I fold. But I fold for the better good. For any genetic problems, abnormalities.
All in all, the knowledge that can be gained from this project is nearly limitless; Because once you have one breakthrough, it is followed by many others.
I'm not going to turn this into another why I fold thread; but I just wanted to thank you for your contribution. I have that thread linked in my SIG.
And I want any other teams to know, I'm not dishing out personal insults.
Smack is smack. It fires people up. I won't talk about anyone's Mom, there dog; etc. No low blows.
I don't wish EVGA to lower there PPD. Quite the opposite. I just want OCN to increase theirs
If we continue to raise the bar on both sides, we'll just be increasing the work that is being done. That's better for the cause right??
So, that being said. FOLD on for the cure!
