Photo Album

Amy grew up being the prettiest of her parents' four kids. The setback did not stop her three brothers from growing into three exceptional men.

Amy and her cousin, Gina. Like their grandmother, Gina also has rheumatoid arthritis. As kids, Amy and Gina turned the tiniest minutia of comparison into a contest to see who would win. (Amy was diagnosed with immune dysfunction 12 years before Gina.)

Eric, Amy, Ian, and Mackenzie.

They don't have MS, but they are daily handicapped by it. They are the reason that all of this makes sense.

Eric intends to be Amy's constant companion and nurse for the six weeks in Israel. Amy intends to be Eric's constant source for riveting conversation. He's pretty pumped.

    Amy…I lived in Austin for a few years and attended Westover. At one of the ladies night events you performed in a Mary and Martha skit that was hilarious! I will never forget it or you. I am glad you are going NINJA on this disease and hope your healing comes soon. I am going to pray for you and your family.

    Dear Amy,

    it was really good to read your website. I came across it one day a few months ago and have subsequently been introduced to you/it again by George Goss.
    I understand that you’ll be having HSCT treatment in Moscow. I will also be there-mid September.
    I don’t know whether our treatment paths will cross but in the meantime until then, I wish you every good energy in preparation for your treatment and I’ll be checking in on your progress.

    All the best
    Phoebe x

    I love reading about your inspiring ninja journey on the HSTC Facebook site and your website gives me so much hope for this treatment and you are helping to raise awareness to others, bless you Amy.

    I found your site via Carmel Turner’s site and I must say, I love your amazing outlook on life, you are clearly very clever and funny. I wish you the best awesome positive thoughts and I will continue to watch your progress and send you that positivity xxxxxxxx
