I officially began my journey with Friedreich's Ataxia (FA) in 2013. It has been a wild roller coaster full of mobility aids, physical therapy, adaptations, broken bones, and fears. But it has also brought opportunities, new friends, learning, growing, clinical trials, writing, and hope. A consistent source of HOPE through the years is rideATAXIA, a nationwide fundraising event benefitting the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance.
H- Humbling: My future is not in my hands. It is in the hands of capable scientists, fueled by generous donors, and in my loving God. Realizing that and living in that truth daily is humbling.
O- Opportunity: I have the opportunity to share my story in the hopes of being a part of the movement to cure FA! I also have the opportunity to redefine my possibilities, priorities, future, goals, and capacity.
P- Promise: As Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.’” I know that I am not promised a life free of trials and hardships, but I am promised hope and a future! So all I can do is foster that hope while striving to make the most out of my future.
I will participate in my 9th rideATAXIA on November 5. Your generous support not only provides HOPE for me but the entire FA community. Please consider Team Kendall as you plan your end-of-year donations and together we will cure Friedreich's Ataxia! (LINK)
THANK YOU for being such an amazing part of Team Kendall!
All my love,
Kendall Cape Harvey
