There are heroes everywhere. A doctor who found the disease early enough to treat it. A family member or friend who found the information to help someone make informed decisions. A caregiver who provided support through the darkest hours. A patient determined to beat the odds. Family and friends carrying on in the fight to build awareness for the disease that took their loved one's life.
