Yasmin walked across the parking lot that was just a few minutes from her local pub, but her feet were sore from a night of dancing. She wasn't used to the high heels she wore. Her friend was following behind her laughing at her inability to walk a straight line. Yasmin agreed to be the designated driver and she didn't mind it at all. It wasn't long ago that her friends were there for her when she needed them, so it was the least she could do. She placed her purse on the hood of her car so she could find her keys That's when she saw the note on the windshield.

Yasmin followed her doctor's orders and took some time to catch up on rest, but her symptoms persisted. She explained, “I was literally walking the distance of a room before I had to stop walking. My exercise routine went from healthy to non-existent. Where I used to go to the gym five times a week, my health was just getting worse and worse.” Something was definitely not right.

Even though Yasmin stopped exercising she continued to lose weight. She didn't have much of an appetite and looked pale. She was miserable. It hurt her mother to watch her deteriorate, yet there was nothing she could do. “My symptoms developed gradually, but in the last few months leading up to my diagnosis, it was just getting worse and worse. My mum said she was scared she would lose me.” Then, Yasmin's health took a very dangerous turn.
