I have never met Livia; yet have only heared wonderful stories from her family of how she is such a blessing to the people around her and has forever changed thier outlook on their life and priorities.
Always wanting to test a 50 Mile run, I knew that the challenge would have to be taken on for a greater purpose. On July 21st, 2014 I'll be taking on the challenge in Beaufort, SC with the mental strength knowing what Livia goes thru every day.
Livia lives with Broncho Malacia which is a collapsed bronchial tube and Doctor's had to put in a trache tube because of it. As a result of the trache tube she also has tracheomalacia. In addition she deals with Pulmunary Hypertension which is mild and not severe but can be if not treated properly. As you can tell, Livia is a girl who lives with quite a few challenges, yet what's so incredible is her fight has inspired her siblings to go into the medical field when they grow up.
All donations will go to a new procedure available to Livia in Michigan. With your help we can contribute to the life of a little girl who has already impacted so many!
