Kelly and her dad were building a race car that she planned to drive in a race in just a few months. Her dad, Ed Sutton, a race car driver himself, knew what was needed to make the car competitive on the track.
Ever since Kelly was five years old she knew when she grew up that she would be a race car driver just like her dad and granddad. When other kids were skateboarding and riding bicycles, Kelly was riding motorcycles and racing go-karts.
And now, the building of her very own race car was nearing completion.
"Kelly", her mother calling out to the garage, "it's time to clean up. You have school tomorrow."
"Okay, Mom", calling back as she wiped some grease from her arms.
"Yes, this car will be the finest one on the track come this fall", 16-year-old Kelly smiled as she pictured herself driving it on the track in front of the cheering crowd.
As Kelly walked into the house she wondered, "Why does that keep happening? The tingling and numbness in my fingers and hands, why does that keep happening?"
She had first noticed it, three years earlier, when she was 13 years old. Her parents had taken Kelly to several doctors over the past couple of years.
"I've seen her go from being a very active athletic teenage girl", Kelly's mom described to the doctor, "to being very weak and tired and having no energy to do the things she loves to do like race."
Her mom went on to describe more disturbing symptoms. "I've noticed that she loses her balance sometimes and there are also times when she just seems so sad and depressed. This just isn't my Kelly."
"Teenagers are often clumsy", the doctor assured Kelly's mom, "It's nothing to be alarmed about. And mood changes often occur during the teenage years. The depression will go away."
But these symptoms persisted until one morning Kelly awoke to discover that she had no feeling on the entire right side of her body.
The next trip to the doctor would bring forth some answers, answers that Kelly and her family never imagined.
"Kelly", the doctor spoke as he faced Kelly's parents, "has a neurological disease called Multiple Sclerosis." Pausing for a moment to allow his words to sink in, the doctor then continued, "We will need to do an MRI and a spinal tap on Kelly to determine which form of Multiple Sclerosis she has."
"My life is over", was Kelly's first thought as she sat in shock trying to make sense of the doctor's words. "I thought my world had come to an end. I didn't want anybody to know. I didn't want to go on living. I just wanted to fall into a hole and just die."
