From one mom to another,
I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day from the bottom of my heart. As I think about the most wonderful gift in my life, my son Hawken, I am filled with an all-consuming joy. His humor, laughter and innate kindness surprises and encourages me every day. And that’s what I want to share with you this Mother’s Day – encouragement.
Even though many days are tough as a Duchenne mom – heck – many years are tough, it encourages me when I sit back and remember that all of us are in this together. We share in the joy, the love and pain as much as we share in the hope of finding a cure. Each and every one of you inspires me to stay strong and positive in this battle. That strength, optimism and heart-warming support is truly a blessing for which that I am thankful every night. My hope is that I am able to return an ounce of this kindness and support as I fight for a cure every day.
From one Mom to another, I not only thank you, I encourage you to take a moment to appreciate yourself, all that you do for your sons, and all that you do to inspire other Duchenne moms. With a grateful and tender heart, I wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day and here’s to a hopeful, healthier future for our children.
