My background story begins only three years ago It was a recent experience but will stay with me for the rest of my life and inspire me in every situation I will come to face Imagine for a moment youre the healthiest youve ever been life is perfect and one phone call begins the end to your life Thats the tragedy my Aunt Diane faced But shes an exception to typical sad stories Shes an inspiration and has influenced so many people especially myself Lou Gehrigs disease also known as ALS is what has formed who I am today My aunt was unfortunately diagnosed with this terminal disease I was forced to painstakingly watch the infection strip the life out of this woman whom I cherished so much As Lou Gehrigs disease took the functioning of her legs she danced As Lou Gehrigs disease took away the functioning body she smiled As Lou Gehrigs disease took the functioning of her arms she laughed As Lou Gehrigs disease took her voice away she was still able to mouth the words I love you Not one moment in this three year struggle did my Aunt Diane frown She did not cry She did not complain She did not ask Why me Although she could not physically move by the third year she remained the strongest person in our family I strive to be just like her She is the poster example of staying positive Dont ever let a failure disability or complication get the best of you Because of her I am a more positive person I wont ever let a problem get me down I will continue to smile I will continue to look at life with a positive attitude Before her final days she told me I have to live up to our name sake Thats exactly what I intend to do
