Guillain-Barre Syndrome: My Journey Back

Shari Ka

It began with fatigued legs and the slightest tingle at the tips of her fingers. Within days the tingling and weakness had spread throughout her body. Her chest ached. Her legs burned. Her arms felt weak. She didn't know it yet, but Shari Ka was in for the fight of her life. Ka was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), a rare disorder in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. She was hospitalized, and, as her condition deteriorated, she was placed on a respirator to allow her to breathe. GBS sapped the strength from her body. Paralysis crept in, and soon she couldn't swallow or even smile. The race was on to save her life. Shari Ka shares her inspirational story in Guillain-Barre Syndrome: My Journey Back. She traces every step of her harrowing journey, from the initial symptoms to the long, arduous path back to health. With the help of amazing doctors, friends, family, and an unwavering faith in God, Ka persevered through incredible pain and long odds and willed herself to walk again. Join her on her incredible journey.
