Some people would walk away if they found out that their spouse had a disease that will take over his life and that he will eventually die from it. I won't walk away.
My husband and I have been together for over 16 yrs. When he was diagnosed with Hepatitis C in 2005 we had no clue what it meant for us. Now with the knowledge that we cannot afford treatment and even if we could it's likely it won't work for him, we take everyday as a gift. We stay together to shore each other up. We stay together to raise our two young children. We stay together because that's what we promised to do. We stay together because we truly love each other, no matter what.
Togetherness. No matter what. It's the right thing to do. Pass it on.

We've all had people in our lives who have made a positive impact on us. A parent or grandparent, a sibling who was there for us, or maybe even just a guy who shines shoes for a living? Whoever they are, tell us their story so they can inspire us even more.Tell Us Your Story All Everyday Hero Stories
