Before July 25th, 2005, I had no idea of what transverse myelitis was. That day is forever etched in my mind and changed our lives profoundly.
I am so proud of Katherine’s efforts, at first to rehab her spinal cord injury (following the immune system attack) and now to lead a full and complete life.
I decided to become involved with the leading group that focuses on these disorders and am raising money to fund research, education/awareness, and patient/family support.
I am learning that thousands of people suffer from these immune system attacks; many of them children. Persons affected by this disorder suffer some degree of physical impairment, from mild to complete paralysis. Won’t you please help advance this field of study so that people like Katherine have better treatment and therapies in the future?
