According to the page, Mance, Torrun and their son, Jaden, were celebrating July 4 in the Clarendon area with family and friends when Mance began experiencing neck pain. “The pain became so severe that they ended up at the emergency room, where Brian became increasingly worse and began to lose all mobility in his limbs,” the page said. Mance and his family consulted more than seven doctors, and finally confirmed a diagnosis of neurosarcoidosis. The illness manifests itself in abnormalities of the cranial nerves, a group of 12 nerves supplying the head and neck area, and treatment is through immunosuppressants. Symptoms include reduced function on one or both sides of the face; reduction in visual perception due to optic nerve involvement; double vision; hearing loss; vertigo; swallowing problems; weakness of the shoulder muscles; seizures; and problems with the portion of the brain that deals with mobility.
