Woman of strength
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.
