Many people think it is "unlucky" or "unfortunate" to be a "winner" in this genetic lottery we call Friedreich's ataxia (FA), and in many respects, I absolutely agree. However, I cannot deny that FA has enriched my life with people who teach me the very definition of grit and character. One of those people was my friend Sam Brown.
I met Sam Brown the night before the first rideATAXIA Dallas in 2011. Beyond introductions, few words passed between us but his smile spoke volumes. I caught him observing me from afar a couple of times. I would look over and he'd flash his signature grin.Add a comment
