Parents hit with insurance denial, second diagnosis in same week

 
 
 
 
by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
The parents of 7-year-old Marcus Galindo, who was recently diagnosed with Krabbe disease, received devastating news in June when one of their two daughters was also diagnosed with the same rare and often-fatal degenerative disorder.
 
In addition to 5-year-old Mariah’s diagnosis, Amy and Marcus Galindo Sr., of La Pryor, were notified that Marcus’ medical insurance has denied coverage of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, both of which are needed to extend his life expectancy.
 
The disease, which affects the myelin sheath of the nervous system, is generally fatal before age 2; however, juvenile- and and adult-onset cases tend to have a slower progression of the disease.
