Paige's Path

Paige Hammond entered her sophomore year living the life of a normal teenage girl. She is an established cheerleader since the seventh grade and an amazing pitcher for her high school softball team. By the second week of school she fell ill. She went to her doctor who sent her away with an inhaler and told her she had a virus. Her mom and dad were persistent and pressed the doctors for answers and were turned away three different times. After the third time, during school, she realized that she couldn’t move her left arm; and as a result, she couldn’t write with her left hand either. She left school and her mom decided that she needed to be seen by a doctor. After...

Paige, I am so honored to have had the opportunity to meet such an amazing young lady such as yourself, I'm only sorry its under these circumstances. You always smile and have such a radiant personality through all of this, you are the embodiment of a hero for many. You are so very blessed to have the support team that you have, your Mom is amazing and I have enjoyed our many conversations. I know this has been extremely hard on you and your family, I just want you to know that although I don't know exactly what your going through, I can relate to being stuck in the hospital and the pains that come with that, I'm here if you or your Mom ever need to talk. In the mean time.... Shine on baby girl, Shine on, and let the world see what your made of!!

Hi Paige,
Stay Strong!
I graduated from Chagrin Falls High School in 2012.
I had MoyaMoya Disease when I was five years old.
I had to relearn how to do everything: write, read and ride a bike.
But I did and now I have graduated college with a special education degree and am an ABA therapist who works with kids with autism.
The things that got me through that difficult time were my friends, family, lots of movies and lots of chocolate. Yum.
Sometimes we need to laugh at what we can't do and always celebrate the small things.
I know how you are feeling right now and it sucks, but think of all the things you can do and all the lives you are impacting.
Not because of your hospital stay, but because of the person you are.
I'm praying for you.
If you ever need to chat or have a listening ear, I'm here.
