A Rare & Life-Changing Disorder
Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a bizarre and frightening illness, but in spite of the trauma which accompanies it, patients and families must keep in mind the fact that there is hope. The loss of control which patients experience, while terrifying, is temporary. It is important for patients and caregivers to see through the duration of the syndrome to the likelihood of eventual recovery.
