Almost immediately after I was born, my parents (and I eventually) would find out that I was about to embark on a journey that not many people experience: one of being told that I wouldn't survive, but if I did I would not lead the most fulfilling life. My story is quite the opposite. I lost most of my pancreas because it wasn't functioning normally, but a medical miracle has taken place and I have been proving that the odds can be beaten on a daily basis.
