Warrior Code Of Honor

Our family came across this beautiful definition of a WARRIOR and thought it would be perfectly fitting to share here with the Running for Rare Disease Warrior team, and the Warrior’s they are running for.

For YOU, the 30 million American’s battling Rare Disease that are all true Warrior’s.  For YOU our son, Warrior Wylder James who battled Niemann Pick A Disease and who followed this code of honor with all his being.  For YOU the Running for Rare Disease team, reminding us all “alone we are rare … together we are strong”.
