Short Bio

I am a 44 years old man, Ecuadorian / American, architect, living in Miami Florida. LGMD2B. I was practicing Olympic wrestling at competition level, I represented my province (Pichincha 1993, 1994,1995), I was injured during training at the age of 20, then I couldn’t get over that lesion, doctors gave me steroids to reduce inflammation ( Meticorten ) It destroyed me. I never thought that wrestling was going to take a different perspective in my life, the fight of my life was about to start. I still can walk, with a cane, but many difficulties, I fall very often, a lot of pain and incredible risk. I am full of fears, every step, every morning, every time a go into the shower, etc.Overall, it is said, that being brave does not mean that you cannot be scare. Being brave means that you face things even though you are scared.I was a fighter, I am a fighter, and I always going to be a fighter. LGMD2B has taken away from me much more than muscles, but it never gonna take away my faith.
