A few days ago, I had the privilege of watching A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story on Lifetime. This documentary tells the remarkable story of how she lives with an undiagnosed disorder and coped with bullying at a young age. This disorder, diagnosed within the documentary, causes Lizzie to not gain weight and have cardiac issues. Some people may feel uncomfortable seeing her at first; but over time, they forget her disability and listen to the heart her message.
