Hi, my name is Doc Maloney and I want to share this tragic story about a wonderful couple I know named Stacy and Scott Douglas. Stacy was recently diagnosed with Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) a rare central nervous system disorder that primarily affects the eye nerves (optic neuritis) and the spinal cord (myelitis).
Stacy is 52 years old, hard working woman, that has been married for 29 years to a retired Green Beret Sergeant Major, Scott Douglas.
When you read this story, I want you to replace the words Stacy, her, or she, with YOUR NAME, or the word me or I. I want to draw you into her story; I want you living with her in this moment, so that you can understand the struggle and fear that is the major part of Stacy’s story every day.
We, who are lucky enough to serve in Special Forces, and have great wives, get to do and experience things that other men just dream of doing. We get to do those things because we have great wives. For over 20 years, whenever Scott went off to do what we in Special Forces do, Stacy stayed back in the rear keeping everything together and under control until Scott returned.
Now it will be Scott’s duty, to pick up the load that Stacy can no longer carry.
