update on Alfredo

Posted by Melissa Pizarro on March 25th, 2015


Alfredo and Kiki are staying strong and extremely grateful for all the support they have received.  

Quick update on what is going on with Alfredo: There have been several studies that found a strong link between Lyme Disease and ALS. While  continuing with his ALS appointments at Stroger  Hospital and attending Northwestern University ALS Clinic, Alfredo is also now trying an antibiotic treatment that has been known to help with severe Lyme disease.  He has an EMG test today and a follow up appointment to go over some results on blood work he had done a couple of weeks ago. So far we have used some of the funds raised on doctors appointments, medication, a medical bed and in the process of either having a ramp built or a lift. Once again thank you for all the support you have given Alfredo and Kiki.

Alfredo's relentless positivity continues to inspire us all.
