  • Father who lost son to amoeba: 'Stay the hell out of the water'

    Jeremy Lewis of Midlothian, Texas, who in 2010 lost his 7-year-old son Kyle to Primary Amoebic Meningoencephalitis (PAM) - known colloquially as "brain-eating amoeba" - spoke to The Island Packet & Beaufort Gazette on Thursday, August 4, 2016, about the infection contracted recently by 11-year-old Hannah Collins, who attended Riverview Charter School in Beaufort. Lewis wanted to make two things very clear: There's not a single drug, he says, that cures PAM, and if patients don't receive medication within hours of showing symptoms, it's too late.
