Join Us In Our Fight To Live

We are asking that all donations for medical help for Stryder got to Sparrow Clubs. Sparrow Clubs exist to set the stage for simple, yet heroic, acts of kindness in schools and youth culture by empowering kids to help kids in medical need. Make sure to specify Stryder Doescher as recipient when donating.

Looking For Answers

Stryder is a ten year old boy that has MANY rare diagnoses, many don’t even have names. He has been to some of the best specialists in the world to get more answers, only to be told “We don’t know.”

Ruled out: hEDS, vEDS, POTS, SVT, OI and other autonomic dysfunction. Possible clEDS (per genetic variation), ROHHAD Syndrome and Mitochondrial Disease. Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) showed 56 variations of unknown significance, meaning we don’t know if they are disease causing or not without more in depth testing.

Current diagnoses!

In the Beginning…

Stryder has had some problems his whole life, but nothing too serious, we didn’t think. They did tests for Cystic Fibrosis and Maple Syrup Urine Disorder etc. He was way under on the growth chart, but then when he was two he finally gained weight after we took him off of dairy so we were excited, then the DR asked what words he could say: one, maybe. So then began therapy.

Keebler has been so important to Stryder!

As you might know, Keebler is so valuable in our lives. As of today, Keebler is 5 years old and was trained to detect Stryder’s seizures, but has picked up on his low and high blood pressures as well as when Stryder’s oxygen levels drop!

What Does Tomorrow Bring?.

Stryder’s long-term prognosis is not good. Because his blood pressure goes very high (and very low), he has a good chance he will have a stroke. In the long-term it will cause brain, kidney and heart damage as well. We were told to cherish the days because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. He can be good today and not tomorrow.

About Stryder’s Invisible Illness Logo.

The Invisible Illness Logo represents invisible illness – the ribbon is transparent, which is in front of the rainbow of colors- the colors represent all the “ribbon colors” of the “invisible” disorders, syndromes, etc.

We need your help!
