TAMMY: BACK TO ACTIVITIES SHE LOVES

“The time that I'm able to spend with my grandchildren doing activities — I'm very grateful to have that back in my life. I was out playing soccer with them. ... My grandchildren never thought that I would ever be able to do those types of things. Their ability to look at me now as someone who could be a part of their life is really something that I, I cherish.”
