Casey and Michelle Stewart

Casey and Michelle’s Story

In 1999, Casey was attending culinary school in California when he began to experience flu-like symptoms including a severe headache, sensitivity to light as well as back and neck pain.

Casey was admitted to University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center where doctors diagnosed him with pneumococcal meningitis. After recovering in the hospital, Casey began pain management therapy and physical rehabilitation. He lost the use of his lower extremities and continues to experience pain and long-term medical issues from this disease.

In 2004, Casey married his wife Michelle. Starting in 2007, Casey and Michelle hold an annual golf tournament to raise money to educate others about the disease in support of NMA.
