Eliza (Lizey) McGowan went from being a high functioning, healthy, active 9 year old girl, to now an 18 year old who requires extensive 24 hour medical care and has lost all mobility. Eliza was diagnosed with an extremely rare neurodegenerative autoimmune disorder that attacks the brain.
In addition to Eliza, the McGowan family also has two boys who attend St Joseph's College.
Friends of the family have setup a GoFundMe page to assist with modifying the family home to better accommodate Eliza's needs so she can spend more time at home with her family.
If anyone would like to support "Eliza's Home Modification" then they can find out more via the GoFundMe link below:
