Support Mike Marra, an EMT with the West Babylon Fire Department who was diagnosed with Gullian-Barré Syndrome which left him paralyzed.

About this Event

Michael Marra is a volunteer EMT with the West Babylon Fire Department. On Wednesday March 6th, 2019 Mike was diagnosed with Gullian-Barré Syndrome (GBS) which left him on life suport and paralyzed completely.

Gullian-Barré Syndrome is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system. Depending on the individual, some cases are more severe than others. Mike unfortunately had one of the worse cases.

After 80 days in the ICU he was recently transferred to inpatient rehab in New York City. Thankfully, he is now able to breathe on his own and is off life support, yet he is still paralyzed from the shoulders down. Making small improvements, the doctors are expecting him to make a full recovery within a year or two. Mike is fighting, for himself and his family which includes Erika and his three sons Alex , Ethan and Dylan.

The West Babylon Fire Department is asking for your support in this matter. We will be holding a spaghetti dinner for Mike on September 22nd. If you are unable to make the dinner but would still like to donate, you choose the "make a donation" portion of EventBrite when you go to purchase a ticket.

On behalf of Mike and his family, they thank everyone for the continued support and prayers through this very difficult time. We hope to see you at the spaghetti dinner.
