Vanessa, 19

I learned that my father was diagnosed with ALS when I was 11. He survived for several years. Along with my older brother and mother, we were an unbeatable care giving team. My brother left home for university when I was still in high school, so I took on immense responsibilities. I still feel close to my Dad to this day by reflecting on wonderful memories that keep him alive in my heart and mind.
