The Faces of Guillain Barre 2017

Thursday, March 2, 2017 0 Comments

May is quickly approaching and with it is our chance to spread awareness about GBS. May is Guillain Barre syndrome awareness month. Last year I created a series on my blog called "The Faces of Guillain Barre". I was blessed enough to have enough support to spot light one GBS story a day.

I had so many well wishes and thank you for featuring this series. I'm excited to receive more stories to be able to make this happen again this May. I need at least 30 testimonials but would love to be able to share more. Or carry it on throughout the year.

Any story is welcomed. I just need them by April 7th. Im hoping to have a well rounded line up. Here are some topics I would love to include;

Newly Diagnosed
5 years out
10 years out
20 years out
Permanently in a wheelchair
Stem Cell transplant
Memory loss
Has a blog
Wrote a book
GBS triggered by- Flu shot, Pregnancy, Surgery, Zika Virus

Same family
Locked in Syndrome
Medical Canabis
Future health problems- other auto immune disease or cancer, ect

Service animal
Other Countries
Feeding Tubes
Has young kids
Extended IVIG
Hyperbaric chamber
Miller Fisher
Surgery for foot drop

All I ask is a summary of your GBS journey, treatments used, date diagnosed, where you are from, at least one picture but the more the better. A before, during and current picture would be great.

We are so blessed to be apart of great community. Sharing my story and writing on my blog has been unexpectedly therapeutic.

A special thank you to all of you who participated last year. I would love an update and to repost your stories!

Please email stories by April 7th.
