This must be so hard for this family, but we know they have the perseverance to keep going strong!
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer has revealed the illness that has affected her beautiful daughter Ali in a new interview.
The little girl has been diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, in which Leah described as:
"The disorder affects her respiratory system and progresses the older she gets. The bigger she gets and the more weight she gains, the harder it’ll be for her muscles to carry the weight."
The family's initial reaction was what we'd expect anyone to feel, but their response has been beautiful!
Here's what Leah said:
"We were scared because we didn’t know what her future was going to look like, but we always pushed for answers. We never gave up, and we never will. We’ll do everything we can to make sure Ali has the life that she needs. Ali’s condition has brought us all extremely close together. We have to stay strong for Ali, and things are going good."
We are SO proud of Leah for continuing to fight for her little daughter's happiness.
It is not going to be easy, but we're sure this family has the resolve to give Ali the best life possible.
Our best wishes to this brave and inspiring family of lovelies.
