For the past four years, doctors at Johns Hopkins University Hospital have been studying Shanyna Isom and keeping her alive with massive doses of medication. These trips are costly and she cannot for the trips to Baltimore or the multiple medications.
Between visits to Baltimore, Dr. Mukesh Jain in Southaven helps Isom deal with the many complications of her mystery illness.
"I had not seen any condition like that before in my life either. I have been practicing for almost 30 years now," Jain said.
During an exam Jain sees a vast improvement over her previous visit. The sharp stems have cleared from her face and arms but still cover her shoulders and back. The sores on her stomach may never heal.
The medicated pads that ward off infection cost $25,000 a month.
"I'm over a million dollars in debt from this illness," Isom said.
