/ Story: Michelle Fights Through Illness & Injury / Story: Michelle Fights Through Illness & Injury

My story started many years ago when I was diagnosed with Degenerative
Disc Disease and Degenerative Spinal Arthritis. After numerous surgeries and moving from the town I grew up in Missouri to sunny Arizona per doctors recommendation to ease the pain. I was good the first 5 years even working a full 40 hours a week, I even got to see you in concert in 2009 at the Pima county fair. Then I had an accident and the back just got worse. After another surgery and being in a fragile state I have not left my home for the past 4 years. It is February 2014 and I just found out your coming back to the fair in April. So here I go I have 2 months roughly before this concert and I will be there because you inspire me and to see you in person again would make everything in my life better.
