Hope for my Mom
As some of you might know, I visited Boston few days ago to meet the ALStdi group. We spent such an emotional time! We talked, we laughed, we cried and we had fun as we did the pepper challenge. I have always believed that I’m enough and I need no one in my life to support me emotionally but the time I spent in Boston has change the way I think about having people in my life. The main reason for my visit was to discuss the ways we can use to raise the ALS fund, which means we need each and every penny you can give to help fund the ALS cure research expenses and come up with a cure. I have been always trying to avoid talking about my mom’s disease just because it makes me feel down. As my young sister Safa always say “ it ain’t easy to see the person who taught you how to be strong struggles to find that strength! that breaks you hundred times”
As much as I try to stay strong and keep my morale high, ALS disease was always the subject that fights my positivity and gets me down sometimes. I was in Boston alone without my family or any of my best friends. After hours of taking about nothing but ALS, I really wanted to go back home and hug my mom and ask her to stay strong for me. I really wished to have one of my sisters to hold my hands and tell me that we are strong and we are fighting through this together. I really wanted to have one of my best friends next to me to tell me that everything is going to be okay and I’m not alone through this. That moment I went on my Instagram and posted ( Always tell your people how much you love them and how much you appreciate their presence in your life and never ever take them for granted. )
God has created us to make this world a better place for each other. To love and help each other. The emotions I experienced showed me how much we need each other’s support, not only financially but emotionally.

ALS is not an incurable disease. It is an underfunded one.
