A 20 hour trip to Arkansas may be exactly what is needed for a Regina man suffering from a rare condition called “Complex Regional Pain Syndrome”. At least that is what his family is hoping for.
22 year old Jarrett Seck was diagnosed with the condition just over a year ago. He got it after being injured during a Regina Thunder game in 2015.
Seck’s life has turned into a nightmare because of the condition as he is in constant excruciating pain every day with him saying his bones feel like they are being crushed,
Later this month, he will go to Fayetteville for treatment at a facility known as the Neurological Relief Center
Jarrett’s sister, Brooklynn, says the object of the trip is simple.
“What we would like to see happen is for his pain to be obviously reduced.” Seck said. “If that can happen, we can start desensitizing his hyper-sensitive skin which is also part of the condition and get him back to having mobility in his limbs because he is paralyzed.”
Seck will travel to Fayetteville with Brooklynn and their dad, David. They will be driving a specialized van that has been designed to make the trip easier for Jarrett.
Brooklynn says that van was purchased thanks to a GoFundMe campaign which so far has raised 95-thousand dollars.
She is so thankful to not only the Regina football community for the support they have shown, but the football community and Regina as a whole for donating money to someone they don’t even know. She says the incredible amount of donations received have been a tremendous morale boost for the entire family especially Jarrett who while excited at what could happen doesn’t really know what to expect when in Fayetteville.
