Leah Messer-Calvert is revealing that her daughter Ali is running and defying all odds, despite a doctor’s diagnosis.
On the most recent episode of Teen Mom 2, we see Leah in tears over the news that Ali, who was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, will be confined to a wheelchair most her life.
But now Leah has some incredible news! The reality star tells In Touch, “Ali is running. She has so much determination … We’re in awe of how she handles adversity.
“She’s doing so much better than expected. We don’t know what the future holds, but this is proof that we should never give up hope,” Leah explains to the publication.
And the TM2 star dishes on how fan support has helped her pull through this hard situation. “One girl who reached out to me also suffers from muscular dystrophy,” she reveals. “It made my hope for Ali so much more realistic.”
