Isaac is a 7-year old like any other. He loves Husker football, and he goes to school at Westside’s Sunset Hills. But Isaac was born with CANDLE Syndrome. The name is an acronym that describes, in medical terms, the symptoms that accompany the disease.
In lay terms, they include frequent fevers, rashes and arthritis-like joint pain. In simplest terms, the disease disrupts the autoinflammatory system — the inborn, rapid-response portion of the body’s immune system. This benefit supports Isaac Barchus’ treat-ment and care.
Currently Isaac travels to the National Institute of Health in Washington, DC with parents Kathe and Steve for continued treatment. This fundraiser helps support their continued medical and living expenses for Isaac.
If you were unable to attend the benefit, you may still contribute by making a check out to the Barchus Family and mailing it to the Scottish Rite office at 202 S. 20th Street, Omaha, NE 68102.
