So here we are…

Whether you’ve seen me on TV, read my book, worked with me, laughed with me, or just generally know of me… thanks for visiting my website. In 2017 I was diagnosed with a rare disease called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). I can’t even begin to explain how terrifying it is to lose your ability to move and breathe, without knowing why. After a few days in the hospital, doctors could tell me what I had (GBS) but they could never tell me why I had it.

I was in the hospital for a month and released on the condition that my mom would be staying with me to help take care of me. One week after being released from the hospital, I went to rural Cuba for a mission trip that I had previously agreed to chaperone. No one could believe that I was going, but a friend encouraged me to write a book about it. So I did. You can check out my book here.

After I released my book and made my Instagram profile public, I found that I’m not the only GBS patient with a ton of questions. So I decided to create a website where I could continue telling my story, and provide useful information for my fellow GBS fighters.

That some good can be derived from every event is a better proposition than that everything happens for the best, which it assuredly does not.  ~James K. Feibleman

My last day in Cuba. Laying on a ground I could not feel. Holding a journal that I transformed into a book.
