Chloe Joyce and her little brother Ethan are more than just siblings; they are best friends. Chloe, born with spinal dysgenesis, has been a wheelchair user since the age of two. Ethan affectionately refers to himself as Chloe’s ‘protector.’
“My brother is my everything. He takes such good care of me. He is a trooper when I had my hip surgery; he waited patiently in the hospital for eight hours! As soon as I got out of the operating room I kept asking for him. As soon as he got there he was right by my side.”
So her readers could get a sense from her brother’s perspective, Chloe asked Ethan some questions after one of her surgeries. She documented his answers saying that he is a “direct and to the point” type of guy. The questions ranged from Ethan’s feelings towards his sister’s surgery to what he enjoyed about being in Boston. Here are a few of the question and answers:
Chloe: What were you feeling when you found out I was going to have to have surgery in August?
Ethan: I was feeling sad.
Chloe: What did you do while I was in surgery?
Ethan: I ate in the hospital cafeteria. I had a nap with my mom and went to the gift shop to pick out a present for you.
Chloe: What was your favorite place to eat in Boston?
Ethan: I liked eating at Lee's Burgers on Beacon Street. I liked getting a vanilla milkshake and a burger with daddy.
Lastly, Chloe asked her brother “What would you tell others about me?” Ethan’s response was “Chloe is smart, kind and 10% more famous than me!”
