After stumping the doctors in 2005 at 6 years old with a similar situation that lasted 7 long months and then making a full recovery, this time they have a diagnosis for Tommy! Tommy has anti-NMDA receptor antibodies in his blood that are attacking his body. It's a rare auto-immune disorder called Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis.
With a diagnosis as well as previous experience, comes knowledge that this battle is not a short one. After over 2 long months in a hospital so far, the Hoffman-Perron family are very aware of what they're up against. This isn't over yet, although the boy has proven to have lots of fight in him to beat this. Tommy's mother, Jamie Hoffman-Perron, has stayed bedside at the hospital for the past two months living at the hospital. His father Jason Perron, sister Alexis, and grandparents spend every available minute with them at the hospital. This family has one goal in mind. Making Tommy better.
Let's help the Hoffman-Perron keep their focus on Tommy and give them a hand.
