UAB receives $3,200 donation toward transverse myelitis research

Posted: Updated:

Researchers at UAB accepted a $3,200 donation from the Jezdimir Transverse Myelitis Foundation Wednesday. 

Mike Jezdimir donated the money raised in a race.  Jezdimir was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, a rare spinal cord condition, when he was just 17 years old. 

UAB's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has been active in researching transverse myelitis.  Jezdimir, 63, credits a good attitude, effective medicine, strong support, and regular exercise with keeping him alive.
