But it was really important to her to share the story and that others would understand it doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In fact, it can be an empowering thing, and something that makes you stronger and us stronger. … [It has been] an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months.

My most proudest thing is our family. This isn’t going to get that.”"
