It steals their personality, their friends,and their dignity, It steals their very soul. I could feel my son’s pain. I could see the incredible fortitude it took to just hold on. My gut told me to search for anything and everything that was available to help him.” Author Bio In the fall of 1972, Kirk was a high school senior, full of dreams and aspirations.
