Our Friend Mike Knapp came down with Fungal Meningitis one month ago.
Fungal meningitis is an infection of the coverings of the brain and spinal cord, the meninges, which is caused by fungus. As with other forms of meningitis, the infection is centered in the cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord) in the subarachnoid space. Fungal infection of the meninges is much less common than bacterial meningitis and viral meningitis. It is rare for an otherwise healthy person to develop fungal meningitis. At this point they are unsure of how he got this but he is being treated aggressively and currently awaiting to have a Cerebral shunt placed. He remains in ICU and his fate at this point is undetermined, although we all know hes stubborn and is a fighter. We pray for a full recovery.
Mike is the sole provider for his family of 4. Mike has an amazing wife Hilda and 2 small children, Paul 5 and Alexandria who will be 2 on the 27th of November.
With Christmas coming around the corner, we all need to get together and show the meaning of giving and help our friend (who would give the shirt of his back or his last dollar in his wallet for anyone in need) and his family.
If you would like to donate other items please contact me and I will arrange to have them delievered to his family...
