I was diagnosed with Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis in 2013. I spent several months in the hospital and several more months recovering from this disease. This will be the 5th year that my family and I will travel to Durham, NC for the Florence Forth Race. We do this to help raise awareness for autoimmune encephalitis and to raise funds so that others may receive the help necessary to battle this disease. All proceeds raised will go to the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance.
