“Play for Paige” Fundraiser & Co-Ed Softball Tournament
Paige is an 8 year old girl who attends St. Peter and Paul School in Scott. Paige was diagnosed with epileptic seizures and was put on a new medication in combination with her old medication to help control epileptic seizures. She had a rare, severe reaction to the new medication known as Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN) which is the most severe form of Steven Johnson Syndrome. Over 77% of her body is affected by this. It causes her to burn from the inside out and makes her skin blister then fall off. It also affects her eyes, which can eventually cause blindness. She was admitted into Shriner’s in Galveston, TX where she has been in ICU (the week before Easter). She will need long term care once she gets out such as physical therapy and continuous care on her eyes. Her eyes have taken a tremendous toll. You can follow updates on Paige’s Facebook page here.
