Juan Antonio’s Story

Juan Antonio Lopez Valverde - Spain Liaison

In 1998, my sister and I were both diagnosed with GBS. After a misdiagnosis and three hospitals visits, it was finally determined we had Guillain-Barre Syndrome. At the time, no one knew about GBS. You would hear of people who recovered and people who have not. The internet was very new at the time so we started to research the condition. We stumbled upon the Foundation’s website, it gave my family, and I hope that we would get better in time.
