Bringing Awareness to Transverse Myelitis (TM)Transverse myelitis is a rare inflammatory disease causing injury to the spinal cord. My mom, Jan, experienced the onset of this neuro-immunologic disorder in March of 2011, and became paralyzed from the waist down (T7). While she has done an amazing job rebuilding her life and rebuilding her strength, she has yet to recover any sensation or motor use of her legs.
