A local family is going through some very tough times.

Cole Desabrais’ life changed overnight when he was 10-years old.

Cole has an auto immune disorder called P.A.N.D.A.S (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections).

This disease is devastating, it comes from a strep infection that leads to mental health issues like obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and anger by causing inflammation in the brain.

We spoke with Cole’s mom and dad Brenda and Ken.

They are turning to the public for help to cover the costs of travel, accommodations and the treatment.

The family has had to sell pretty much everything they own just to keep Cole at home.
