Lexi has been battling a neurological disorder that causes severe pain on the left side of her body and severe stomach cramps. She is traveling with her parents to Minnesota on Sept. 17 for doctor's appointments at the Mayo Clinic where she will undergo extensive testing for two weeks, said Lexi's Aunt, Jennifer Yeager.
An abnormal MRI and EEG showed that Lexi has developed scarring on her brain tissue and nerve damage to her stomach arms and legs, Yeager added.
Lexi has not been diagnosed with a specific disease but her family hopes that after her testing at the Mayo Clinic she will receive a diagnosis and begin treatment.
