Boy with mysterious illness and can't get help. Went around the county and something would always shut down care, very interesting for those who can't find answers http://articles.citypages.com/2008-05-14/feature/mystery-illness-fells-young-man/

Parents were shut down and prevented from obtaining their son medical care. Was he sick....Yes very - a medication error suppressed his immune system and lung infection spread from the sinuses to the brain, what was the infectious cause ... Tuberculosis. A Minnesota blond, hair blue eyed kid suffers with a chronic TB infection for over two years before he is provided TB meds. :(:mad::eek:
