Jaina’s cousin, Shivani, contacted Ataxia UK to share the blog posts written by Jaina before she sadly passed away. Jaina was diagnosed with Friedreich’s ataxia at 13 years old. In her blogs, she wrote about her life with ataxia and how ataxia affected her. Jaina’s hope with her blogs was to inspire others who are in a similar situation:
“I am writing this blog in hope of inspiring others, also in a similar position with a life-changing disability; When you feel there is no hope, know that you’re not alone, and let’s try to seek the positives together. My experiences as a British Indian, adopting a fusion of the two different cultures has shaped the life I live today.”
