John Arvin is my younger brother. When he was 8 years old he was diagnosed to have a STROKE IN THE YOUNG which is a rare condition according to his Doctor. Then he undergo CT SCAN, MRI then they noticed some abnormality in his brain on top of his left eye causing to trigger his seizures from which he carried all his life. This medical condition started since he was just 7 years old. This has limited his life in so many ways. Now he is 26 years old and still fighting this condition. And it has been an uphill battle for him. He carried it all through out his life as a kid, through his High School days and through college. But he fought it hard.
Financially we are struggling with the medications and lately the seizures are happening even so often than the usual and we are seeking help for his check ups and to consult other Doctors for a second opinion.
Two month ago while watching TV Basketball just on sitting on a chair. He had a seizure and fell down hard on the floor face down and his left arm was in a bad position therefore breaking it. It would mean so much to us and most of all to my Brother if we can find a cure for his condition.
