Mona Harper or “Mama Mona,” as she is affectionately called by family and friends, is suffering with Pudendal Neuralgia (PN), which makes simple tasks like walking and sitting up extremely painful.
“Over the last few months we have had the most extreme of many situations. I have seen my mom cry more than any daughter should have to,” wrote Grace in a deeply personal May 11 blog post on her website, ImAFighter.org.
