[efoods]A Shreveport girl is battling a rare disease.
In December 5 year old Hannah Pham started complaining her leg was numb. When her parents took her to the hospital doctors diagnosed her with Tranverse Myelitis. It’s a disease doctors say infects about 1 in a million people.
Experts say the disease is a neurological disorder which typically follows a virus.
Hannah got an swine flu shot in early December. The Pham family is worried that’s what caused the illness, but the CDC hasn’t reported any cases of Tranverse Myelitis following swine flu shots.
Hannah has been hospitalized for five weeks, meanwhile her family is praying for her recovery.
