Shawn Guzman was on vacation with his family when he had a seizure for the first time. Over the next two months, his convulsions increased, accompanied by drastic mood swings, and Shawn lost the ability to walk and talk. Nobody could identify the boy’s baffling condition until doctors at Scottish Rite hospital discovered he had a rare disorder called anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis. After three months in the hospital, Shawn was re-learning how to walk and eating solid foods. Today, with help from the Children’s outpatient and day rehabilitation programs, Shawn can walk, run and play soccer with his friends again.
