Raising a child with a disability is no easy task at the best of times, constantly worrying about whether you're doing the right thing looms at the back of every parent's mind.
One of the things any celebrity has to come to terms with is trolls, and they seem to be targeting Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer's daughter.
The hateful comments about Ali are sickening. Keep scrolling for the full story, and Messer's powerful clap back...
Messer is the mother of three daughters...
The star has been on camera since 2010, which has documented her romantic ups and downs, as well as her struggles as a young mom.
At 4 years old, Ali was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy.

In her recently released memoir, Hope, Grace, & Faith, Messer opened up about her daughter's health struggles.

It's the lack of research that worries Messer.
via: Instagram“The hardest part was it being unknown and being okay with it being unknown. It took me a while to get to that place where it’s like, it doesn’t matter. She’s so resilient. She’s so determined. Yes, she gets people staring, but she knows her worth. She knows what she’s capable of, and there’s nothing that’s going to stop her. But I think, honestly, the hardest part is just it being unknown and, as a mom, wanting to fix all of it and not being able to."
But that's not the only thing causing Messer to worry...
Some of the comments on a photo of me with Ali are despicable. I’m sickened. 😑 What world are we living and raising… https://t.co/4MDChFznDI— Leah D. Messer (@Leah D. Messer)1590342479.0
