Joseph David Faces of Arachnoiditis

Joseph David's journey with Arachnoiditis began unexpectedly following a failed back surgery in October 2018. Originally seeking relief for a herniated disc in the L5-S1 area, Joseph's condition took a turn for the worse when he developed a rare disease called Adhesive Arachnoiditis (AA) as a result of subsequent treatments, including spinal injections. From that point on, Joseph experienced unimaginable pain and suffering every minute of every day.

Throughout his challenging journey, Joseph displayed incredible strength and a positive outlook, driven by his deep love for his family. Despite the impact of Arachnoiditis on their lives, Joseph's spirit and soul radiated love and light, drawing people toward him. His unexpected passing on June 7, 2023, at 11:17 AM has left a void in the hearts of his loved ones, who will forever hold him dear.

To honor Joseph's memory and raise awareness about Arachnoiditis, we invite you to consider donating to the cause. While not everyone may be able to contribute financially, spreading awareness about this devastating illness is equally valuable. Arachnoiditis affects countless individuals and families, and by sharing Joseph's story, we can shed light on the urgent need for improved understanding and support.

Arachnoiditis is triggered by an insult to the Arachnoid mater, resulting from trauma, infection, or chemical irritation. The body's natural response involves triggering glial cells to aid in healing, but in those susceptible to Arachnoiditis, it leads to neuro-inflammation and the clumping and tethering of nerves, known as Adhesive Arachnoiditis. This condition causes severe pain and poses significant challenges for those affected.

By donating in Joseph's memory, you contribute to vital initiatives aimed at raising awareness about Arachnoiditis and providing much-needed support to individuals and caregivers facing its daily hardships. Your donation helps fund research, educational resources, and support programs that empower those affected by this debilitating condition, in particular our Zoom Peer Support program.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Joseph's family for choosing our nonprofit organization as the recipient of donations in his name. Their trust and support mean the world to us, and we are committed to honoring Joseph's legacy by making a lasting impact through our efforts.

We sincerely thank you for considering a contribution and for joining us in our mission to improve the lives of individuals and caregivers impacted by Arachnoiditis. Together, we can make a difference and provide much-needed solace, strength, and support to those in need.
