My sister, Jamesha, like me, was diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) and was dependent on a BiPap machine and wheelchair.
Jakira Avery was diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) at a very young age. She uses a wheelchair and is dependent on a ventilator at night due to her having a tracheotomy. Jakira advocates for the disabled community. She enjoys listening to music, art, and spending time with family and friends.
