Read­ing about Reeanna Har­i­laal (“My Im­mune Sys­tem is Try­ing to De­stroy Me”, June 17) was si­mul­ta­ne­ously heart­break­ing and in­spir­ing. I can’t image what it must be like to try and lead a nor­mal life after be­ing told that you only have a few more years to live. But, although she had such lit­tle time to be­come the per­son she dreamed of be­ing, she man­aged to do so! She proved that our fail­ures and chal­lenges make us who we are. They de­fine us, and one day, when we look back and see how far we have come, they will make us proud.
