My name is Mike Jezdimir and I run the Mike L Jezdimir Transverse Myelitis (TM) Foundation. TM is a demyelinating disorder of the spinal cord. TM attacks people around the world and paralyzes them; regardless of age or gender. Their degree of recovery depends on how fast they get diagnosed and how fast they get treatment. It hit home with me that one the biggest problems we face as a foundation is that very few people even doctors have ever heard of TM. I have several stories on our webpage of kids, toddlers and teens that have contracted this disease, a disease for which there is no cure.
