ORLANDO, Fla. - A community is pulling together to help a Central Florida family as they try to find a cure for their daughter's undiagnosed disease.
WFTV first reported the story in September of 10-year-old Brianna Skriver, one of only 100 people to be admitted into a government program for people with undiagnosed diseases. Since then, a Central Florida woman began organizing a large fundraiser to help cover Brianna's medical expenses.
According to her family, Brianna was a perfectly healthy child until around age 5, when she began to have difficulty running. She has since lost the ability to walk, talk, and swallow food.
The fundraiser will be held on December 1, at Coco Key Hotel and Water Resort on International Drive in Orlando.
