Geuko's Journey to Kennedy Krieger

Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) is a rare, polio-like condition that affects the body’s nervous system, specifically the spinal cord. After developing AFM, Geuko was left almost completely paralyzed and on a ventilator. He spent nearly two years at a rehabilitation center in Germany, but what his father, Gert Jan, really wanted was to take his son to Kennedy Krieger Institute, which he’d read about online. In February of 2019, Gert Jan and Geuko flew from the Netherlands to receive care at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Watch as Gert Jan tells the story of Geuko's journey to Kennedy Krieger.
