My sister has survived multiple strokes. She's been told, verbally, that she has Moya Moya, but we're African-Americans.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My sister has survived about 5 strokes. She was forced to quit her job because of brain damage causing confusion. She has trouble understanding and communicating to others. In addition, she is in constant pain, especially in her legs and thighs and she has severe weakness in her hands and arms. Doctors have told her that she has Moya Moya Syndrome. We need assistance because without insurance, we do not have the money to visit many doctors to get treatments. She has been told that a very risky surgery is an option, but we need another opinion. We are hoping that Chasing the Cure can somehow help us get treatment for my sister.
