Link for 10/15/09 – Red Sox fan with a ‘Yankee’ illness
If you do only one thing today, read this inspiring piece about a Red Sox fan battling ALS. I have always admired people who, when dealt terrible cards, find a way to keep their chin up and make the best of their situation. Paul Szantyr has found a way to continue to live a positive life even as ALS takes over his body and there are so many lessons to be learned from him. One of my best friends lost her father to ALS and, in him, I saw the same determination to make the best of it and not lose his life before he actually stopped breathing. I hope Paul’s book is published – I want to buy it and read it!
