Never Give Up! by Natalie Brady
Hey, I’m Natalie and I am 34 years old. I was diagnosed at the age of 5 when my mom noticed I was shorter than my other siblings. I am one of 7 children. I took growth hormones from age 5 up until the age of 12 or 13, and then I started on hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
I played soccer from the age of 5 until high school when I tore my ACL. I have a bicuspid aortic valve that I have monitored, I am pre-diabetic, and I have anxiety and depression. I want younger butterflies to know they can do anything they put their mind to, and I want to encourage them to never give up! You are meant to be here and have a special purpose in life.
