How Change Makes Tyrosinemia Better

Mahatma Gandhi taught that we should endeavor to be the change that we wish to see in the world. (I believe Gandhi may have been on to something). I’m wondering if one smart girl who has done research in tyrosinemia believes Ghandi’s words, too.

This statement is a call to personal authenticity and suggests that we make every effort to embody in character and action that which would see created for ourselves, our fellows and future generations.

We’ve all heard the expression “People don’t change.”

And I sometimes agree with that… they don’t change unless they actually take action towards what it is they want to change.

I believe that the only way to get what it is we truly want, in relationships, in love, in business, in health and wellness, in life, is to Be the Change You Wish To See (You’re the man, Gandhi. Good stuff).

I also believe that we are all capable of incredible and magnificent things.

We can change… better yet, we can transform our lives.

We can Be and Do and Have the life of our dreams.

But, we have to get off our “butts” (Yes, that butt).

  • Redirect the old habits.
  • Learn some new (and fun) skills.
  • And take action.

Very simple.

Cassie Barnby, a 17-year-old senior in high school, who also happens to have tyrosinemia, works alongside a professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Together, they’re trying to find answers about her rare disease. Cassie wants help improve the childhoods of other kids who may be diagnosed with it.

Changing the Present AND the Future

Cassie is motivated by the opportunity to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

She wants our world to be one where children will not suffer through a disease which can prove fatal.

She has a vision for the world.

And she is making strides to manifest it.

She’s leading the way and leading by example.

We have a lot to learn from people like Cassie who is trying her best to be a positive influence on the world around us.
