For the past 25 yrs, our family has persevered through many trials. My husband and I were stationed on a military air base in Japan as newlyweds and my health went south while living and working in old WWII buildings. Our newborn, born while there, had issues from the very beginning. It only continued stateside while the disabilities increased and docs told us to get used to it and there’s nothing they could do. To this day, the kids and I have have neurological disorders like auto-immune encephalitis, ODD, OCD in addition to MCAS, major mitochondrial and muscle weakness, learning difficulties, and more. We’ve been through a lot while building our sweet family of 6. Tourette disorder has been a challenge through-out in all three boys and this year our 17 yr old daughter started. It’s very odd for a teen to start ticking that late in life and it’s all due to the mold. My chronic dizziness waxed and waned for 20 yrs while trying to be a productive mom and wife with no diagnosis. It was absolutely debilitating.
Our hunt for root causes finally began a few years ago after caregiver burnout and caring for my terminally ill aunt. My full body tremors were the last straw. After what seemed like endless doctors, a friend told us about a genetic doctor who absolutely saved our lives. Things were looking more hopeful but there was still something not quite right. We couldn’t fully heal and this year my husband’s health deteriorated before our eyes with major heart blockages, heat intolerance, inflammation and could barely get out of bed. My kids’ mental status weakened even more than before and I remained in constant pain and couldn’t think straight. We were all very weak, couldn’t think, and couldn’t function. Finally we did a mold inspection and the inspector said our home that we’ve lived in for 10 yrs was so bad with mold that we needed out immediately. After the kids lost several key family members this year and close to losing Daddy, now they lost their beds, their toys, everything they knew and loved that makes them feel comfortable and feel secure as they battle encephalitis. Our kids’ ages are now 8, 13, 17, and 23 and they helped us trash 75% of our belongings and 99% of our furniture. We are slowly feeling better physically day by day but due to our financial burden, we no longer have the means for medical treatment to get rid of the mold in our blood and calm down the brain that causes major meltdowns. We desperately need neurofeedback and ozone treatments. We are forever thankful to you donors, Malachi’s Message and especially our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for seeing us through! Your love and support mean everything to us!
