Mitochondrial disease is a horrible diagnosis- it is progressive, heartbreaking and all around just awful.
But in the midst of the awfulness, some amazing people come into your life.
One of these amazing Humans is my friend Calvin. I have known Cal for 15 years. Tomorrow this amazing human turns 17.
If you know Calvin, you know his piercing blue eyes. You know how he holds your hand tight and gazes right at you. You know his brilliant smile and the way he engages with you. You never want to leave his side.
Please help me celebrate Cal’s birthday tomorrow- send him a note or post a note here, I’ll make sure he receives it.
Cal is a delight.
Cal, so many wishes for the very best day and the very best year. To your health and that amazing smile. Keep fighting the good fight my friend.
