There we are, complaining about life and all the unfairness we experienced in school and at work, when there is someone out there, fighting hard to make the best of everything she could. Someone, who is using her life to make an impact before the day she falls and lost it all….
Kayla Montgomery, a young teen who was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS) when she was 14 after she fell from a soccer game. MS is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects the nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing complications with muscle movement, the sense of balance and also, vision (NHS, 2014). Unfortunately, Kayla has the most aggressive form of MS. Her future looks bleak as there is no known cure for it at the moment.
Her story, narrated in the video, will tell you more about how she came to be diagnosed with MS after a soccer injury; how she spend 8 months in agony as she has no feelings from her waist down; how she stood back up and started running; and how she decided to run and be the fastest runner in her league.
Her story will bring tears to your eyes. Her fighting will, will inspire you…
“My legs.. where they go? Help me please…” Her words trailed out but her experience will be your take-away for today and the days to come.
Believe in yourself, like how Kayla Montgomery, her family and her coach believe in her.
