A Missouri teen has been left blinded by a mystery illness that’s been plaguing her since she returned from a family cruise in July 2017. Jordyn Walker, 15, was initially told the illness that robbed her of her sense of taste and smell last year had a “one in a million” chance of returning, but this December she landed in the pediatric intensive care unit at University of Kansas Hospital with severe stomach pain and blood in her stool as pressure built behind her eyes and her face swelled and turned purple, Fox4KC.com reported.

After 16 days of testing and two surgeries to reduce the swelling in her eyes and face, Walker was told the still-undiagnosed mystery illness had left her permanently blind.

WARNING: GRAPHIC PHOTOS BELOW. The article goes on to state the following:

“There’s no answers,” Kendyll Walker, the teen’s mother, told Fox4KC.com. “Nothing you can do.”

The family said every test that’s been run on the teen has come back negative. Their GoFundMe page has listed her described symptoms and potential diagnoses in the hopes that a doctor may come across the case and offer new solutions or theories.

“There has been no diagnosis to determine the cause of this event,” the “Jordyn Walker Has Gone Blind” GoFundMe page said. “There are many symptoms pointing to some sort of autoimmune disorder or vasculitis. However, more research and testing will need to be done to determine an overall diagnosis.”

    How sad! Praying for this young lady! I guess she’s the only one on the cruise that got this mysterious illness?! I’d be logging everything she ate while on the cruise to see if there’s any connection there! Bless her heart!
