But, thanks to all of you who wrote me either in emails, text messages or through social media… you lifted me up and I wanted to be as transparent and uplifting so day after day I shared my story. I’ve learned life can change in a second. I’ve learned what happened to me didn’t just affect me but also my colleagues, like Armando Herna..” he voiced.
