Moira Greenway: "I really, really like who I am and I think I am this way because of the things I’ve been through. And I’ve seen it in both perspectives. I’ve seen what it’s like not to have a disability or to feel like you don’t have a disability. I’ve also seen what it is like to have a disability and be in a wheelchair. So, I can’t take those things for granted."

Ikinuwento ni Moira Greenway na isang babae ang lumapit sa kanya habang nasa cruise sila.

Sinabi umano ng babae na nabasa nito ang artikulo ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) noong April 15, 2022 tungkol sa pagkakaroon niya ng Friedreich Ataxia.

Si Moira ang 23-year-old daughter ng former actress na si Bunny Paras at ng DJ na si Mohan "DJ Mo Twister" Gumatay.

Lahad ni Moira sa Cabinet Files sa pamamagitan ng Zoom Interview, “I had a guest and she said she had read the article and she had goosebumps.

"Speaking to me, she was like showing me her goosebumps on her arm. She took photos, she’s super, super sweet.

"She recognized me from the photos but then she said that I look like you [Bunny] and I look like dad."

Ang adoptive father niyang si Tom Greenway ang kinikilalang ama ni Moira dahil ito ang nagpalaki at nagturing sa kanya bilang isang tunay na anak.

Ang Friedreich Ataxia ang dahilan kaya hindi na nakakalakad si Moira mula noong 17 years old siya.

Pero kahit gumagamit na ng wheelchair, normal ang kanyang pamumuhay at nagtatrabaho siya sa kasalukuyan sa Disney World sa Orlando, Florida bilang front desk officer sa All Music Hotel.

Sampung taon ang edad ni Moira nang malaman nito ang karamdaman niya.

Ayon kay Bunny, iyak nang iyak ang kanyang anak dahil takot na takot ito sa puwedeng mangyari.

"I REALLY, REALLY LIME WHO I AM"

Makalipas ang labintatlong taon, isang matapang at punumpuno ng positibong pananaw sa buhay ang Moira na nakausap noong May 5, 2022 ng PEP.ph sa pamamagitan ng Zoom.

“I was ten, I think when I was diagnosed,” sabi ni Moira.

“I’m being completely honest with you, like I have a lot of realistic-ness when it comes to things like this because people always tell me that I should have been depressed a long time ago and I could be on depression medication and all of these different things.

"But the thing is, that never happened to me because in my head, it’s like, no matter how sad, upset or angry I am about it, it doesn’t fix it, it doesn’t change it.

“I might as well do what I can do in the meantime, and hope and pray it changes itself.

"Until then, I’m alive! I don’t wake up every day in a hospital bed, you know?

"And things can be so much worse, and they’re not. It’s just a matter of being grateful for that.”

Kasama sa Zoom interview si Bunny kaya tinanong namin ito at si Moira sa mga gagawin nila kung maaaring ibalik ang mga kamay ng orasan.

Sagot ni Bunny, “I think if I could turn back the time, siyempre, I wanna see Moira normal.

“I know she said she don’t wanna change a thing, pero imagine the possibilities she can do, which is the person she is right now being in a wheelchair but she could do all these.

“[I] Imagine her healthy, being able to travel, not worrying any about health issues. Just soaring high.

“I would like to change that part when it comes to her health and maybe I would like not see the remaining ten years when it gets harder for her health. I wanna change that.

“I don’t wanna see the worst part of it. That’s what I’m scared of.

"Bilib ako kay Moira that we try not to read more into it and we just hope that her condition, she remains okay right now."

Walang nais baguhin si Moira sa nakaraan pero gusto niyang mabago ang kinabukasan niya.

Saad niya, “For me, personally, I still wouldn’t change a thing.

"If I should turn back time, I don’t know that I would change it because it’s who I am, but if I could change the future and make myself okay in the future, I would do that in a heartbeat.

“But I really, really like who I am and I think I am this way because of the things I’ve been through. And I’ve seen it in both perspectives.

“I’ve seen what it’s like not to have a disability or to feel like you don’t have a disability. I’ve also seen what it is like to have a disability and be in a wheelchair. So, I can’t take those things for granted."

Patuloy ni Moira, “I guess, for me, I won’t change a thing even though sometimes, it’s terrible. And sometimes, you still feel bad, and it’s not all sunshines and rainbows every single day… for anybody.

"So, you just gotta do what you gotta do, and hope it all works out in the end. So far, I’m doing pretty good for 23 years now."

Walang dudang malaki ang pagpapahalaga ni Moira sa buhay na ipinagkaloob ng Panginoong Diyos at tanggap na tanggap ang kanyang kapalaran.
