Mike's GBS Journey

Michael’s  “story” began on Sunday, June 3, 2018 when he developed  numbness in his face, hands, and feet. His mother, Deanna, brought him to the emergency room where he underwent multiple tests and was  eventually admitted to the hospital.  Mike progressively and quickly became weaker and developed trouble swallowing.  He was diagnosed with Guillain Barre  Syndrome- which affects his nerves and muscles.  Mike is currently getting supportive care with  breathing support , tube feedings, and Immunoglobulins . But this is not the whole “story”. This is one chapter in Mike’s life.  Everyone who knows Mike (aka Ice Mike) knows that he is a fierce competitor. And that he  will do what he does best-  WIN!! So stay tuned to this  site for updates as the story unfolds and to offer well-wishes  and support to Mike and his family. They are so grateful.  With the love and prayers from Mike’s awesome family and friends, this story will have a happy ending. Just you wait and see!
