Eleven year old Noah has been in the fight for his life since late July after suffering an allergic reaction to medicine resulting in a severe form of Stevens Johnson Syndrome/TENS (Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis). This disorder causes the patient to lose skin as it attacks the skin, mucous membranes and eyes.
Noah lost 95% of his skin. We’re raising funds for medical costs and to enable Noah’s Mom to take off from work when needed to aid in his recovery, rehabilitation and for educational support as we prayerfully expect him to recover.
Since August is Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) Awareness month, we are also joining others affected by SJS and urging everyone to “educate before you medicate” and know all the side effects of medications taken which includes over the counter drugs.
Stevens Johnson can happen to anyone.
