”While shooting the photography for Run to Win, a lady nearby asked, ‘She’s someone important, isn’t she?’ I smiled and anwered, ‘Yes, she is somebody pretty important.’ The thing about Missy is never one time did I hear her complain about things being unfair. I never heard her saying the doctor screwed her over, or God screwed her over. She always dealt with her challenges as a temporary problem.”
