Brinley suffers from a rare disease, but she wanted to encourage other kids with her disease by showing her daily routine.

Brinley lives with a rare genetic auto-inflammatory disease called TRAPS HIDS, which causes recurring fevers.

Though she is only 4- years-old, Brinley's parents encouraged her to learn how to administer her own injections of Kineret and today it something she does on a daily basis.

Her mother filmed this video to encourage other ill children who have to take daily injections for various reasons.

While she may have been nervous while injecting herself on camera, in the end she smiles through her pain and tells her young audience "I hope you feel better and don't get sick anymore."

Check this video out.
