Help Demi Kane Walk Again

Starting early on Monday Sep. 11th 2018, Demi began developing symptoms for a rare and serious neurological condition called transverse myelitis, or inflammation of the spinal cord. It began with severe pain in the middle of the night and progressed to loss of sensation and function in her limbs. As many of you can imagine, this prompted a visit to the ER, which then led to a battery of tests, including MRIs, spinal taps, a transfer to the University of Utah Neurological Care Center, and many overnight stays in the hospital to get to the bottom of what was happening.



Everybody is doing their best to focus on the future, and the road to recovery and not dwell on the past. That road however will include rehabilition and physical therapy to regain the strength and function lost in the sudden on-set of this condition. The good news is, so far she is seeing immense progress in the treatments at the hospital! She has gone from being unable to move her arms and legs to near full function of her arms, and a positive outlook for her legs due to the progress she has made!




Unfortunately the financial impact is hard to completely ignore, and hangs like a cloud over Demi's head. She was very lucky to have health insurance in this instance, however the yearly deductible hasn’t quite been met. And due to the nature of the condition, it has prevented her, and much of her family, from being able to go to work normally and add to the strain.



We would appreciate any help that anyone is willing to give to aid in these scary and trying times, even if that is just love and prayers!
