Amanda and Lantz Lewis were worried when their 3 year-old daughter Evelyn couldn’t stand up straight one morning. They tried to get her to stand on her feet but she kept collapsing, so they rushed her to the hospital to see what had happened to her. They were surprised when the doctor found a tick bite on Evelyn’s scalp, she was diagnosed with Tick Paralysis. The tick insect had released a neurotoxin which had paralysed her, the doors removed the bite from her head which improved her conditions.
Evelyn was back to herself again as she was smiling away knowing that she could walk again, her parents were relieved to see her getting better.
