Mikey B has been diagnosed with a rare auto immune disorder called Guillian Barrè Syndrome. When you have Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) the immune system (the body's natural defences) produces harmful antibodies that attack the nerves, causing paralysis. There’s a treatment for GBS but it takes time to work, the damage caused to the nerves moves fast and the recovery is slow and long.
Mikey and his family had just celebrated his son Legend’s blessing on Saturday 7/6, he was not feeling good and his hands and feet started getting numb to the point his legs started giving up on him. On Monday 7/8, Mikey had to be taken to the emergency at MAUI Memorial, after many tests Drs found a diagnosis. The results are shocking since Mikey is a healthy, active person but we know Mikey and his family are not alone, and they count with your amazing support and the support of the community.
Mikey was at Maui Memorial for 10 days and now he is home with his family. His recovery could take from three months to a year. Mikey, Legend and Nell need your help to get through these hard times !!!! Rent, food, medical and rehab expenses will add up fast with only Nell working. They appreciate any donation you can give them and they are thankful in advance for your kindness!
