A few months ago, I was invited to attend Sobi’s Annual Employee conference in Nashville, TN, as a guest speaker to share Liam’s story. There was no doubt in my mind I needed to do this and was so honored to be asked to do so, but to say I was nervous was an understatement. I was terrified. Not only do I not like speaking in front of large groups of people, I didn't know how I was going to be able to speak out loud about Liam's journey to such a large group. Would I be physically and emotionally able to do it?! I got through it (I believe with the help of a little angel) and I am so glad I did it. The feeling I felt afterwards was one of great accomplishment. If I were to die tomorrow, I feel content in knowing that I made a difference by sharing Liam’s story and honoring his fight. It's a different kind of accomplishment than raising thousands of dollars with the help of so many and supporting our mission. It's a far deeper accomplishment. I cannot give him a hug or tell him face to face how much I love him and how proud I am of him. But doing things like this is how I continue to show my LOVE for him. Thank you, Sobi, for this amazing opportunity to educate others and to honor our son. And the biggest thank you of all to my mom for supporting me through it all!
