Jeremy Obata was born with a rare genetic disorder that didn’t manifest until he was in high school. He lost his ability to speak. He was diagnosed with Pank 2, which causes iron to build up in the brain. There is no known cure or treatment. Twelve people in the world with Pank2 had deep brain stimulation surgery and experienced varying results. Jeremy wanted to try it, so we followed him, and he is now able to speak again.
