I am doing this page for my Fiance's brother Jeremy. He has recently been struggling with CIDP. CIDP (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) "is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder, which is sometimes called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy, is caused by damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves. It often presents with symptoms that include tingling or numbness (beginning in the toes and fingers), weakness of the arms and legs, loss of deep tendon reflexes (areflexia), fatigue, and abnormal sensations. CIDP is closely related to Guillain-Barre syndrome and it is considered the chronic counterpart of that acute disease." (National Institute of Health) Before CIDP Jeremy was an avid runner, and very active. He has a wife and a young daughter. The CIDP makes it difficult for him to enjoy many things he used to do. His insurance denied him to get the treatment he needs and they don't know what to do next. We decided to start this Go fund me for the family in hopes to help them if even just a little. Every little bit counts, and will not go unappreciated. This treatment could mean getting back to the things he loves to do, and not having the constant worry on his family. They aren't the type to ask for help, but every one can use a little help once in a while.
