Your Ambassador of JOY brings YOU the opportunity to touch Your very essence. Welcome Misty Diaz who has always enjoyed pushing limits.In early 1991, she would enter in 50 yard, 100 yard dash races, competing in her walker and sometimes crutches. Proving to herself nothing is impossible, while showing others you can do anything! Still hanging in her home are the very ribbons she won, 1st and 2nd place. A vivid reminder how far she has come. Being born with Myelomeningocele the most serious form of Spina Bifida in 1984, Misty was already fighting. Having multiple operations just three days after being born premature, things were definitely going to be different, she just didn’t know things would be this great.Life has really changed for her, once she decided to get rid of old thinking and start fresh. She finally let go of all the labels people gave her and accepted the fact she was born with Spina Bifida, but that wasn’t going to stop her and she can use this as a way to help others
