Ryan and Karia Stockdale were high school sweethearts who married right after graduation. They now have four children, all of whom suffer from a rare yet devastating disease known as Eosinophilic Enteropathy. EE is a white blood cell disease that attacks proteins, preventing the ingestion and digestion of food. It also affects and causes diseases of the lungs, kidneys, blood, intestines and immune system.
