Danny Wuerffel Expected To Recover From Guillain-Barré Syndrome

Danny Wuerffel's executive assistant Sara Pace has confirmed the former Florida Gators QB has been hospitalized with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, releasing a statement that sounds like very, very good news. Pace shares the following quote from Desire Street Ministries board chair Luder Whitlock:

Fortunately, an early diagnosis identified the disease, permitting swift medical treatment. Consequently, his GBS specialist expects a full recovery. Meanwhile, Danny has asked me to express his appreciation for the prayers, love and support he has received during this time.

The statement also acknowledges that Wuerffel came down with the illness due to a stomach illness, likely the bug he mentioned getting in Colorado. True to form, Wuerrfel asks that gifts be made to his ministry rather than to himself.

Guillain-Barré Syndrome can lead to paralysis if not treated quickly. Recovery times can vary widely, but this is excellent news either way.
