‘The Bravest Woman I Know’: Donald Trump Shares Emotional Moment With Dying Miss Wisconsin At Rally

Donald Trump shared an emotional moment with a former Miss Wisconsin at his rally in Janesville on Tuesday. The terminally ill former Miss Wisconsin, Melissa Consin Young, thanked Trump for giving her the ability to leave her Mexican-American 7-year-old son a full ride to college. The beauty queen is suffering from a terminal autoimmune disorder, which is causing her heart to slowly shut down. Young says she is thankful for Trump and his pageant, which provided her the ability to leave her son with an education despite her imminent passing.

The Daily Mail reports that former Miss Wisconsin Melissa Consin Young attended a Trump rally in Janesville to personally thank the business mogul for his support during her illness. The beauty queen recalled a letter she received from Trump in the hospital that was made out to the “bravest woman I know,” claiming that Trump gave her the ability to provide her son with a college education even though she will likely pass away before seeing him off to the university.

The terminally ill Young suffers from an autoimmune disorder that arose during her pregnancy and resulted in the failure of the part of the brain that controls heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, respiration, and digestion. This has left most of her vital organs unable to function including her heart which she says is like that of an 88-year-old woman. While attending the rally, Young got the attention of Trump, and he proceeded to make his way to the woman in the crowd. After hugging Young, Trump handed over the microphone to the former beauty queen as she thanked him for his kindness during her struggles with an incurable illness.

“You’ve saved me in so many ways. In recent years I’ve been struggling with an incurable illness and I’m on home care now and it was caused by a doctor’s medical negligence. In those dark days fighting – right now all the tubes have been removed and I have a ‘do not resuscitate’ order and I have a seven year old son – those days in the hospital, I received from you a handwritten letter that says ‘to the bravest woman i know’. I’m here now to thank you in person and that was my biggest dream. I wanted to thank you because through you and your organizations, my son, a Mexican-American, through your organizations and just being able to stand on that stage with you in 2005, and the outpouring of love, ultimately provided my son with a full-ride to college.”

Trump was taken aback by Young’s beautiful tribute speech and decided to end the rally noting that “you’re not going to beat that.”

Young says that she has written a series of letters to her son that will be passed on to him after her death. In the letters, she claims that she tells her son to pass on the generosity and pay it forward for the gifts that have been given to him.

The beautiful moment between the former Miss Wisconsin and Trump was captured on camera as the pair embraced, and Miss Wisconsin finally lived her “dream” to tell the businessman in person how much of an impact he had on her life.
