Tamara Brooks:

I just wanted to write in for the iron will award. At 5 months old I was diagnosed with hole in my heart and enlarged heart. At 6 I had open heart surgery and was diagnosed with a blood disorder just prior to surgery. Im missing the clotting factors. The drs told my parents I wouldn't be very active. they were wrong. I was always on the go and joined track, basketball, baseball, volley ball etc. At 18 almost 19 I was involved in a deadly car wreck that left the people who crashed into us dead. I spent almost a month on life support. Lost my unborn daughter Kimberly (6.5 months along) I lost most of my right lung, broke most of my right ribs, tore most of my back muscles and abdomen muscles. All my organs were ruptured except my heart. All taken out repaired and most put back in. Had to have a chest tube coming out of my lung area for 4 months afterwards to drain poison building up in my body. My right shoulder was torn 1/2 foot out of place. I have 5 vertebra that were kinked / twisted. (3 in back 2 in neck) I did years of physio to try to stop the pain. I started body building 8 years ago to deal with the pain and almost competed before but my scars from the accident stopped me. Move forward to Aug 2014, My hair all started to fall out. In Feb 2015 I was diagnosed with alopecia univeralis as I was training to compete again but now I had scars and baldness to try to overcome. 2016 I hired GFIT to get me to my goals of competing. This is my year to face my obstacles and overcome my fears :) so theres a little glimpse into the life of me
