Jeremy's medical expenses

Jeremy Kent Shephard Maxwell is a vibrant, energetic, kind and hard working 20 year old. All who know him would agree that he is always moving whether it’s working at Pizza Hut , going to college, going to the gym or just being with friends and family.
On Wednesday this was all snatched away when after a weekend of crazy migraines, hives and numbness in hands and feet he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome .
Guillain-Barré Syndrome is the body's immune system mistakenly attacks part of it's peripheral nervous system which has placed him in the ICU.  He's receiving immunoglobulin therapy. Immunoglobulins are proteins that the immune system naturally produces to attack infecting organisms. This is an intravenous injection. He has also started physical and occupational therapy, this will need to continue for as long as it takes to make him 100% again. Jeremy has been in the hospital since Wednesday and is unable to walk or even sit up by himself. And for those that know how he is always at the gym this is very hard for him. Unfortunately Jeremy doesn't have medical insurance. He will be unable to work and will need care for awhile. He has accumulated a large amount of medical bills and will need to pay for treatments and therapy. We are asking for any help that anyone can give. Anything helps. If not comfortable with Gofundme please text [phone redacted]. Y'all can also send money to his mothers zelle [email redacted] Thanks.
