In 2014, Ali was diagnosed with titin myopathy muscular dystrophy, a rare form of the progressive weakness disease, but new numbers are keeping her mom optimistic.

Leah tweeted on Monday that “there are now over 100 cases of Titin Myopathy Muscular Dystrophy worldwide.” 

With that, research on the genetic disease continues.

The Teen Mom 2 star shared: “Research is showing a life expectancy of around 70 years, as long as there are no signs of heart or lung failure.

She captioned the picture: “I wouldn’t change you for the world, but I’ll do whatever it takes to change the world for you! #MDwontstopher #GirlMom #MuscularDystrophy.”

Leah was forced to shut down one follower after an especially vicious troll headed for the comments to write something nasty about Ali.

The mean commenter wrote: “She needs a strict diet she has gotten obese it’s disturbing.”

After seeing the rude words, Leah used her Instagram Story to clap back at the hate spewed towards her disabled daughter.

She shared the vile comment with a response saying: “Wow. Obese? What a s**tty comment.

“Unfortunately, we get comments like this frequently. So let me bring you some insight…

“Ali’s body does not ‘build muscle’ or ‘break down fat’ the way ours do. We all eat a very healthy diet!

Leah finally shared her problematic journey in her memoir Hope, Grace & Faith this past May, after publicly hiding it.

She admitted that her “botched” spinal tap during her C-section with daughter Addie in 2013 led to her use of and finally addiction to prescription pain medication.

The reality star elaborated, saying that after the hospital gave her Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Tylenol 3 for the pain, the opioids pushed her “over the edge” as she battled the disease for years.
