Hello and Welcome! Thank you for visiting Team- KEVS CORE FOUR. Trust me when I say my brother (Travis), my mother (Janis) and I (Taylor) are my dads BIGGEST Fans. If you have the pleasure of knowing my dad, you’ll know this is a real club.
My dad Kevin is a role model to many, a teacher, an artist, a comedian, the “BEST Dad ever” he can make you laugh even when you forget how. He always knows what to say. He is the Superman that’s got your back and never expects anything in return. He is very wise and has a heart of gold. And get this! He is so well liked he went and became a Justice Of the Peace so he could wed family and friends who asked! This guy is unreal. (See! The fan club thing is real! Told you!)
With helping others always on his mind I’d like to share his story he shared on his Facebook page below...
“Posting here is not something I do very often, but this post is important to me. I want to share an important health issue I have been dealing with on the off chance it may help someone else.
For more than the last few months I have been having a difficult time speaking. The words are ready but the mouth will not cooperate. Eventually eating and swallowing also became very difficult especially at night. Further at times my speech became like I was very, very intoxicated. Add to this physical exhaustion.
Also on occasion my left eye would droop. Later the droop would go away. While all of these symptoms seem like the signs of a stroke, I was always clear headed and aware of what was happening.
An MRI showed no mass and no tumors. All the doctors spoke of ALS. Thankfully those tests can back negative.
What came back positive was a test for Myasthenia Gravis. This rare condition is treated with medication, which I started today. One of the causes of this can sometimes be a tumor in the chest. Which I am being tested for soon. (This tumor is benign.)
So my journey continues. I was initially diagnosed and treated for a sinus infection. Please keep this story in mind in case you hear of someone with similar symptoms. It has been a long few months and not once did Myasthenia Gravis get mentioned until I saw my neurologist.
The medicine is suppose to relieve the symptoms. I need to talk, I have so much left to say!” -Kevin Dadoly
My mom, brother and I are proud to be supporting the MGFA) through the MG Walk. The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against myasthenia gravis.
