After a few days however, the swelling suddenly vanished (TGWTB). Another sign that Jeannie had FOP was when her mother noticed something.

When Jeannie was four years old, she was diagnosed with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva by the Mayo Clinic (TGWTB).

My body ached, I stopped eating and tried to stop feeling by sleeping for close to twelve hours a day. Luckily my parents, god bless their souls, fought tooth and nail with me almost every day just to get me to sit up and get out of bed never mind leave the house.

When school ended in June of 2015 I wanted to continue on to my senior with the rest of my classmates.

Lady was a huge part of my childhood, because she was one of the first pets I had as a child. One day we started to notice a little lump on her stomach, we didn’t think too much about it , into about a month later when the lump grew drastically larger , we rushed her to the closest veterinarian hospital and found out that she was in the early stages of cancer , but the tumor was growing at a rapid paste, which meant that lady was going to have to get the tumor removed and treated in the very near future.
