THE TEXAS AMBASSADOR OF HSF
I LIVE TO TELL THE STORY!
I am Tonya Mainor! I am strong and courageous. Many want to know where my strength comes from. My strength comes from God! I was just a little girl when I lost my mother. She was my everything. She was the one that most understood me and my condition.
I have a condition called Neurofibromatosis, a condition that causes tumors to form in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. I have dealt with some rough days and at times I felt like I was alone. I would spend days crying and hurting over the loss of my mother and my condition. "If only my mother was here," those thoughts swarm my head continuously. It wasn't until I met the love of my life, Reggie Mainor, that I started to understand real love. He taught me to love by the way he loved me. He is my number 1 support on my weak days. I'm so grateful to have him in my life. Learning to love me has been the most rewarding decision that I have chosen to make daily.
