KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After violence cancer, a 25-year-old former Smithville lady has been diagnosed with amyotrophic parallel sclerosis, ordinarily famous as ALS.
Natalie Root’s family says she’s one of a youngest in a nation to have a disease, and now she’s relocating behind to Kansas City to quarrel for her life.
Root faces a outrageous challenge, so friends and family were watchful during Kansas City International Airport on Thursday night with flowers and smiles to let her know she has a group behind her. They wore “Team Nat” T-shirts, and hold a ensign adult for her.
Root was diagnosed with thyroid cancer final spring, and she had it private and went by radiation. Her scans came behind cancer free.
But in a meantime, she started building opposite issues. Root pronounced she would notice her left leg would go numb, forcing her to tumble to a ground. Root was vital in Boston, went to a doctor, and eventually was diagnosed with ALS.
“It didn’t blind side me. It’s been about 6 months and a final integrate of months it’s been flattering apparent. It only didn’t have a name though we knew what was function though it wasn’t like a large surprise. It’s a small crazy though it’s only a day during a time,” Root told Fox 4’s Megan Brilley.
Root will start earthy therapy and investigate trials during a hospital. For some-more information on how we can support her, click on this link.
