DENTON , TX -- Emily and Tye Baudin are approaching their Honeymoon stage like most other newlywed couples.

“Fun!” Tye described the marriage so far.

"I would say fun,” Emily Baudin agreed. "Goofiness, silliness, playfulness.”

These two are full of energy, though Emily certainly has an excuse not to be.

“I'm tired all the time,” she admitted.

The Baudins are one of our favorite love stories at NewsFix.

Emily, struggling with Friedreich’s Ataxia since she was a teen, found Tye, a local fire fighter, and the flames couldn’t be put out.

We were there at their wedding where Tye carried Emily to the altar.

The rare neurological disease, which causes paralysis, will never get between these two love birds.

"We do everything together,” Emily said. “He's like my caregiver.”

Now, four months after their big day, Saturday brought another one.

The dynamic duo was in Denton for Ride Ataxia, an event staged in cities across the country to raise money for research and, hopefully, a cure.

Emily could easily say, “Why me?” when it comes to her diagnosis, but her attitude, her husband, and mostly her faith keep her looking up.

"I thank Him for giving it to me, and not, say, Tye, or anyone else,” Emily said about her faith.

That faith can carry you a long way, but this couple is proof that someone special can literally carry you through life.
