About This Activity

Thank you for supporting the Mike L. Jezdimir Transverse Myelitis Foundation. We are dedicated to finding a cure and prevention for this rare spinal cord disease. We feel confident that by working with the scientists and researchers at UAB that one day we will be free from a disease that is so traumatic on patients and families.

Can you imagine being a 1-2 year old just learning to walk when all of a sudden you are in terrible pain and then become paralyzed. Your parents immediately rush you to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. The doctors tell them they are baffled and that they have never seen anything like this before. You are suddenly faced with trying to help a very young child understand a lifetime of pain, fatigue, rehabilitation and uncertainty about a future. Young or old really doesn’t matter when the outcome is so bleak.
