Anyone who has watched Teen Mom, and everyone who read this knows I do has always wondered what exactly was wrong with Leah Messer's daughter Aliannah. We watched her struggle while her twin sister progressed normally. In an interview with In Touch, Leah says her daughter has Muscular Dystrophy and will be confined at some point to a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
“We were scared because we didn’t know what her future was going to look like, but we always pushed for answers.”
Leah says that as Ali gains more weight her body won't be able to carry the weight and she will have to be in a wheelchair. I think it's great that she finally opened up and shared the reason for the slower progress compared to her sister and hopefully that annual Labor Day telethon will finally come up with a cure for the disease.
