Reflection of my Mother


Reflection of my Mother

 

Belinda Silva

My photo is a tribute to my mother who survived Guillain-Barre Syndrome and was completely paralyzed for weeks. She was a warrior who displayed courage, strength, and perseverance. Decades later I developed bacterial meningitis and only had a 1% chance to live. Learning to walk again was one of the hardest tasks I’ve ever endured. I’m alive and here today because I am a reflection of my mother!
