This is the hardest article I've ever had to write because it means putting my biggest secret on display for everyone to see and use to judge me. It's a secret I've guarded for years, a secret I've cried over, a secret I shouldn't be scared to share, but I am.

I asked Jennifer Krychowecky what she gave up during her nine-year journey caring for her mother, Linda Krychowecky, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease at the age of 59. Her response was eye opening.
"Give me your definition of what it means to be a girl?" That is the question photographer Kate Parker asked 13-year-old Callen Swiegart between her football game and cotillion class.
I talked to Amanda and her mother and asked them what they felt they needed and would really appreciate on our special day together. Most important to Amanda was that she and her mother could be pampered at the same time.
Amanda, who served as a Marine in Iraq and Afghanistan, was injured not once but twice and is the recipient of two Purple Hearts.

After losing her job, Adelina was forced to move to a Brooklyn shelter with her family. Birch Family Services, an organization that provides education, habilitation, residential services to people with developmental disabilities, nominated Adelina and her daughter Jazel for Glam4Good.

When tragedy struck Sandy Hook Elementary School, first-grade teacher Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis, used her quick-thinking to keep her 15 students safe. Kaitlin founded the organization, Classes 4 Classes, to help prevent future violence and nominated fellow teacher, Kristi McCann and her class to get Glam4Good.
It's quite overwhelming to be in the presence of someone who crushes multiple stereotypes, and does it with grace. Misty Copeland is African American. She does not have the typical "ballerina's body." She didn't have access to classical ballet early in life, so she began dancing "late" -- at age 13.
At the age of just 34, Stephanie Seban is fighting stage 4 metastatic cancer. Although 24 hours later, Stephanie got the
A few months prior to her cancer diagnosis, Stephanie noticed an unusual lump forming in her right breast. She didn't really think much of it. It wasn't until months later, while laying in bed, that she felt the lump again.
