Cowboys All-Pro center Travis Frederick diagnosed with rare auto-immune disease

1 post in this topic

Cowboys center Travis Frederick revealed some awful news on Wednesday, as the All-Pro lineman announced on Twitter that he had been diagnosed with an auto-immune disease called Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Frederick said he has already received two treatments for his condition in the last two days and that he is optimistic because his disease had been caught at a relatively early stage, but his doctors have told him he will be out indefinitely as he continues treatment.


My wife was diagnosed with Guillian-Barre Syndrome after the birth of our oldest son...(23 years ago) and a very good friend of ours was just diagnosed with Guillian Barre Syndrome in the last week.  

The good news is that the caught this early, and hopefully he responds to the treatments.  If, like my wife, he does not respond to the treatments well, he could be in for a long road to recovery.
