Former Wilmington girl unable to walk or talk, disease unknown to doctors

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A ten year-old girl, once an active soccer player in Wilmington, is now confined to a wheel chair, and doctors cannot figure out what is wrong with her.

Brianna Skriver, a former Ogden Elementary School student, is now one of only 100 people admitted to a national program for undiagnosed diseases. Her regression started around age five, when Brianna played soccer for Cape Fear. Her mother, Tammy Skriver noticed she was having a hard time skipping and her run looked different.

Five years later and now living in Central Florida, after numerous tests and hospital visits, Brianna cannot walk and is fed through a tube.

“She gets frustrated very easy because of course she knows she used to be able to run around and play and she can’t do any of that now,” Tammy Shriver says. “It’s been a struggle. I’m a singe parent.”

Tammy says doctors with the National Institutes of Health are now working to help figure out what exactly Brianna has and hopefully give her disease a name

If you are interested in helping Brianna, you can visit her Facebook page, ‘Friends of Brianna.’
You can donate to help pay for her medical bill at any Wells Fargo Bank. Just say you want to donate to ‘Friends of Brianna Inc.’
