Who am I?


I am Samantha's Mom

She is three years and nine months in this picture
We lost our sweet girl at four years and one week. Samantha had a mitochondrial disease which meant her cells could not produce the energy she needed. Our Miss suffered siezures, tummy issues, developmental delays and many other issues that come with this disease.
In her journey, she fought so hard to stay with us.
This blog is us. From her first birthday to my life without my girl.
She continues to push us. To search for a cure for mitochondrial disease and to support those families effected by this complex medical issue.
My best work was being her mom....and continues to be. Welcome to our blog and our journey in healing and living in honor and memory of our girl.
