This wonderful young man, Donny, is in the middle of a health battle and his Dr's have been working hard for over a week to figure out what is causing his neurological symptoms.
On May 6th, Donny was admitted to the hospital after losing control of the left side of his body. After initial tests, an MRI was performed and a mass was found in his brain. Donny has been in the hospital for 10 days without a clear diagnosis. Currently, he is looking at a "Clinically Isolated Syndrome" meaning it's a lesion in his brain caused by an autoimmune demyelinating event. If he has another, he will be diagnosed with MS. Brain tumor is still a differential diagnosis that can't be 100% ruled out yet, but doctors are leaning more in the other direction. He follows up with a neurologist that specializes in MS and will have a repeat MRI in June that will hopefully tell us more, depending on how the MRI changes.
Hopefully, Donny will be released today, but the family is still facing the financial burden 10 days of in-hospital care, the numerous diagnostic testing performed during that time including an MRI. Donny will be going through both physical and occupational therapy as well as another MRI in June.
Jean and her family are High Country locals and are currently seeking care ~2 hours from their home. The Moree family continually supports their local community and are active in helping others in their time of need.
