Diagnosed in early 2009 with MELAS, our little Diego fought the disease like a true warrior. From his first stroke in 2009 through his pulmonary issues a few years later, and many other ailments, his inner strength never gave up. “A warrior must only take care that his spirit is not broken.” Diego’s spirit never broke. Our little warrior’s battle against MELAS ended on August 14, 2014 – one month shy of his 8th birthday. Diego’s torch will never be extinguished, our journey will continue. One day the true cure for this disease will be available. On that day, all our warriors will celebrate a victory. We love you, Diego!
You are the shining light. Love you always. Nurse Clare
