A special teal hunt

Postby Super Dave 32 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 8:25 am

I go to church with a family that is incredible. Amanda is 21 years old and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when she was 14. She has very severe episodes where she is wheelchair bound for months at a time. In January of this year, Amanda had an extremely severe relapse of her MS and was paralyzed in the hospital for over a month while she received intensive drug and physical therapy. She is now doing very well and is able to walk. Thank you God!

Amanda LOVES to hunt. I had the honor of taking her and her dad on her first duck hunt on Saturday. Attached is a picture.

Awesome story. I hope she continues to enjoy life and not let the MS keep her from trying things. My wife has MS and it is amazing how differently it affects people. Those episodes can be devastating. We've been fortunate that she hasn't had any since I was in Iraq in 07.
Our prayers will be for her and her family. A strong support always helps.
