Day 30 of #31DaysofSMA Topic: Why We Will Never Give Up
This is Tyler and Dara Bailey’s story:
Dara Bailey has never viewed her life with SMA as being different than the lives of other people. Growing up, she had plenty of goals. She went to college and obtained a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy. She went on to work with younger children in schools, listening, lifting them up, and providing tools to aid in their success.
Dara’s strength and stamina are what drew Tyler to her. Together they built gizmos and gadgets, and eventually full-on wheelchairs.
They have been together for 10 years, and own and operate a custom wheelchair fabrication shop.
“As we move forward in life, I know we will be challenged. There will be moments when waving the white flag sounds reasonable. But we will not. We will never give up.”
Dara and Tyler, you are a dream team!
