a plea for a girl who has just a few years left to live - and is just 20

Rebecca is 20 - Lafora's Disease is VERY rare takes children in their early to mid 20's and there is no cure. She is a high school friend's relative who was just diagnosed with this disease. Him and his family are all stunned to find this out. We think our life is so difficult, we look at our family and struggle--but there are worse situations and today I am thanking God my son has just mental illness and not a disease that will take him in a few years.
