AN INSPIRATION...


My son, Kyle, after being discharged from the hospital.... making the best of his reverse isolation mask! After a long battle with Crohn's, he unfortunately had to suffer with Methotrexate toxicity after being administered 14 times the normal dose for two weeks in error! His immune system went down to zero and his mouth developed ulcers so bad that he had no normal lining left in his mouth, throat, cheeks, lips, and tongue. His pain was unbearable and the ER said he had the most horrific case of mucositis that they have ever seen. He is still at risk for long term toxicity effects and and liver damage!!!  For two weeks he suffered excruciating pain and debilitation while following his prescription! Fun For Cure, Inc. is going to add a new program and trust to our services. We will be fighting against these deadly mistakes that are so easily communicated to patients who are used to high amounts of daily medication! Stay tuned for more updates!!!
