David’s Story

Melissa B. Saint Augustine, Florida

My husband David, father of 3 and now a medically retired SSG in the US Army, was diagnosed in Jan. 2018 while we were stationed in Hawaii. We have been learning as much as we can as his condition progresses. We are thankful he can still talk and walk short distances without help. Unfortunately he has lost the use of his hands and strength in his arms. Our youngest just turned 1, He can’t wait for her to start walking to play more with her. We love to spend a lot of family time in Disney with our girls to make those lasting memories while we still can.
