Lee, shares that many who are effected by FMS may not know what to do or where to turn for help. FMS carries a high risk percentage of those who commit suicide when they can’t get help for the pain. She plans to continue with the “Exceptions Get Over IT Challenge” as her main source of help and relief for her and those whom she supports and encourages to live beyond the pain; always having and sharing HOPE for a cure.
