College athlete writes book about perseverance after not eating for 15 years | 10News WTSP
When Remington Walls as just four, he got medical news that would cost him birthday cakes, pizzas, and all the other tasty treats kids love.
“It’s called Eosinophilic Esophagitis,” said the now-19-year-old. “It’s basically a disease that attacks the esophagus.”
The medical hurdle has been a 15-year battle for the entire Walls family. Remington survives on nutrition shakes. He drinks one every 40 minutes or so. Some days he’ll consume two dozen shakes.
