Daniel Hubble's Bio
Daniel, 28 and his fiancee Stephanie have 2 small children, Kayleigh (3) and Colton (l). Daniel was born and raised in Frederick County and is a plumber by trade.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2014, he was able to maintain a stable condition with help of daily medication until August of 2016. After a visit with his primary doctor and his gastroenterologist specialist for severe stomach pain and bleeding that lasted for over 3 weeks, he was put on steroids and bed rest. This did not help so he was admitted to FMH for two weeks. He was placed on several medications, IV fluids and a liquid diet. He found no relief so he was then transported to Johns Hopkins. At Johns Hopkins he received a medication called Remicade that has to be administered through IV infusion. This medicine is commonly used to treat ulcerative colitis or crones disease. Once again they did not get the results they were looking for.
At this time he is awaiting approval for a second Remicade treatment. If this does not provide the relief needed, he will then have surgery to remove part of his colon.
Daniel has lost over 50 pounds and has countless units of blood training from his body leaving him very weak. When he is able to leave the hospital (no time soon) it will be quite some time before he will be able to go back to work. This has put quite a financial strain on this young couple.
Unfortunately Daniel will have to deal with this lifetime disease although controllable at times but a burden for life.
