This post will have nothing to do with Celiac Disease or the gluten-free diet. This post is dedicated solely to asking for prayers & basically a miracle for a sweet 6 year old little boy who has been plagued by a horrible, devastating disease for the past 1.5 years of his life. Collin was diagnosed with Devic’s Disease by the Center for Pediatric Onset Demyelinating Diseases (CPODD) at the University of Alabama in Birmingham on March 5, 2008. Now , his family is struggling to deal with this devastating diagnosis and everything that comes with it.
Here is a picture of Collin with his favorite Nascar Driver, Jimmy Johnson.
Collin’s family has sacrificed so much for his treatment and they have done whatever they have had to do to try to keep him well, including a move to another state for better treatment options. This meant his parents had to change jobs & try to find new ones in this horrible economy. Their house (the one they were unable to sell where they used to live) is in the process of foreclosure.
I want so badly for things to turn around for Collin, for his family. I am praying that they can get Collin well and work something out with their house. Lisa & Carey, Collin’s parents, are amazing people with unbelievable strength & courage, but how much can one family handle?
