Alex’s new prognosis was even more devastating than the last, a completely reasonable time to break down. But this is Becky we’re talking about.
“I realized I had a choice to make. I could either sit and feel sorry for my son and our family, or I could get up and do something about it. Reactive or proactive? I chose the latter.” She dove headfirst into research, advocacy, and making sure Alex had the very best possible care he could get. She also got a new job at a center for special needs kids, but Alex had a rough couple of months battling illness after illness, and Becky had no choice but to miss work to care for him. She was let go this past January.
