Patient Stories

My Son, Ethan

My 16-year-old son, Ethan, was diagnosed with CIDP in February after several months of nerve issues, including loss of coordination, balance, and the ability to walk and run normally. He has started to see improvements with the prednisone treatment and we are praying that after he finishes his dosing, this disease will be put into remission.

Ethan is a very active teenager and absolutely loves playing basketball. Even though his dream of playing at the college level seems far off right now, his grit and determination is something to reckon with. Through all the tears and tough days, there is light at the end of the tunnel for him. God has a huge plan for his life.
