Q. Has there been one person or one moment or one piece of advice that's fueling you to get past this even in your darkest moments?
A. All I can think about is family. My mom battling being sick and her day-to-day struggles. (Paulette George suffered a stroke and is paralyzed on her left side.) It always is something for me to really be grateful for; grateful for her making it through it. She had it a lot worse than I did. Not one day do I feel I'm on my own or in a dark place or do I even feel like I have it bad. What she went through makes it easy for me to fight.
