Essay

The person I am nominating is my Aunt Anna.  She is one of the most hardworking, charismatic people I know.  She suffers from the disease known as Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  MS is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.  From childhood, I can remember her as the hardworking mother who tends to her children, does all of the outside gardening, painted the house, and managed to put a full course dinner on the table by the evening.  She has had this disease for a few years now and has not let it change her lifestyle in any way.  She is still the caretaker of all the young children while doing everything she can for her family.  Every other day she has to take shots for MS, which tires her out, but she continues to fight the disease as if she is completely healthy.  Each day she goes on long walks, even in the cold because she believes it is necessary to stay physically fit.  She manages to go to work, and come home and tend to everyone's needs.   She truly is an inspiration in my life.
