I am writing to let you know how much my brother has inspired me and made it through the terrifying last couple of years. As early as age 10 my brother was ill and last year got an illness that made him enable to walk for half a year, losing out on school and the friends that he loves dearly. He pushed through and there was no way on holding him back. When he hit year 6 we found out he had a genetic disorder passed down from one of our parents that made him have to control what he can eat and what he can't. This makes me mad that my brother cannot choose how to live his life. But the latest thing was that he is in a wheelchair and he's getting depressed cause he can't hang out with his friends, he can't do everything that a 13 year old is meant to be doing. All I have to say is that I look at Sam and I think that he deserves to have something happen that he can be proud of and be happy again. And if he can not walk by the time of the torch I will help him and run with him, and if he can run/walk I will make sure he has my whole support all the way. So I'm begging you to let my brother do something that he can be proud of. Thank you for reading.
