HEROES rarely look the way we draw them in our minds: attractive, imposing figures with rippling muscles and strong chins. More times than not they are HUMBLE BEINGS, SMALL and FLAWED.. It is only their spirits that are beautiful and strong. - Richard Paul Evans The Gift
Hunter Hunter is my 7 year old little sister who has a disease that will take her life. The reason I chose her is because she goes on living not knowing if the next day she will die. The disease Hunter has is Late Infantile Battens Disease. Battens disease is when you are missing an enzyme in your brain that gets rid of the fat and protein in the brain. I think of my sister as a hero because she is brave, loving and a determined little girl.
Hunter thought she could lift the cooler by herself!
Hunter and Lacey in the snow! That was a very cold day!
The cabin I chose my little sister Hunter as my hero, because she is a really determined little girl. I remember when we went to our cabin in Star Valley, Wyoming . At the cabin there are two big tires in the front yard. Hunter was three or so and she was determined to climb the tire. She spent all day trying to climb it. When she finally got to the top she was the happiest child alive!
