Lou Needs Our Help!

Lucio “Lou” Turco is a 56 year-old man who is suffering from a medical condition known as transverse myelitis. Transverse myelitis is a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord, causing muscle weakness, pain, neuropathy, and fatigue. Lou is also facing degenerative disc disease in his lower back, and cervical myopathy of his neck. Lou’s condition has affected his strength and ability to walk safely, as he often falls and is unable get up on his own. Lou cannot stand for any length of time and requires a wheelchair for mobility when long distances are involved. Lesions on his spine cause leg muscles to go into deep spasms, causing lack of sensation from the chest down to Lou’s toes. He suffers from weakness of the arms, little hand dexterity and an overactive bladder. As you can see, Lou is suffering a great deal and he needs help.
