Support Alys fight against Guillain-Barré syndrome

As some of you may know our loving daughter, sister, aunt, wife, and friend Alyson is currently fighting against a very rare and severe case of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Mid January Alyson came down with the flu. After being sick she began having all kinds of weird symptoms - numbness in her hands and feet. Her symptoms rapidly got worse and she lost the ability walk- and the use of her hands. She also has trouble speaking.. and her hearing is/was compromised. She began having seizures and was taken to the hospital. 

After a trip to the hospital.. and a battery of tests she was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. Which showed in her spinal fluid. She was admitted into the ICU where they continued testing and began treatment.  

They started her on interferon transfusion therapy. She has regained minimal usage of her hands. Her brain is clouded- she is having grand delusions.. She’s becoming confused, upset and agitated.

She isn’t responding to the transfusion therapy as they had hoped. So, they are going to continue another round of treatment. We are unsure of what the future holds but we know it will be a long tough journey for her. 

With that, the stress of finances is the last thing we want Zach and Alyson to be worried about. As a family we decided to start a go fund me for them since Alyson is unable to work. 

Alyson has a long road ahead of her. Our family wants to thank everyone for their support, thoughts and prayers. All donations will be used and directly given to Zach so he can continue to support their family with as little added stress as possible. 

We cant thank you enough, 
The Blazinski/Birkhahn family
