Student Spotlight: NMB Student diagnosed with Fibromyalgia defies tough odds
NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A graduating senior at North Myrtle Beach High School is ready to receive her diploma after beating the odds.
Little River teen Madelyn Babson lives by these words: "Even when you don't have the answers you want, there is always a way to push through and keep going."
There were days Babson said her body was in so much pain, she could hardly get out of bed.
"It's mostly throughout my entire body, pain throughout all your muscles and tendons," Babson said. "It's really hard to handle sometimes."
It all began in middle school. Babson went through tests, many doctors' visits and physically therapy before she was sent to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston to find her diagnosis. In seventh grade, she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
Now a senior at North Myrtle Beach High School, she said she has learned how to manage her pain and her schoolwork.
