Jazzmin Peluchette is a teen-ager who is athletic and plays on her high school volleyball team.

In July, she had a sudden onset of pain, and landed in the hospital.  She was blinded and paralzyed and could not breathe on her own.  Eventually, she would be diagnosed with Neuromyelitis Optica Disease, an autoimmune disease that attacks the spinal cord and the optic nerves. 

She has regained some movement and some sight, but is still a long ways away from full recovery.  She has vowed to recover 100%.  Her determination is inspirational.
