Hawaii teen heads to California, battles rare disease

Hawaii teen heads to California, battles rare disease
 By: Taylor Preza  It’s a disease that impacts less than one in 100,000 people a year, and it is impacting one young woman right here in Hawaii. On July 16, 18-year-old Taylor Ann Hiraki was diagnosed with Moyamoya, a rare and progressive brain disease greatly characterized by strokes caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain. It all started when Taylor had returned home to Honolulu, Hawaii for the summer after completing her first year of college at Pacific University in Oregon.  She was working her seasonal job at Maile’s Thai Bistro in Hawaii Kai moments before a series of mini-strokes started to occur.  A family friend just so happened to be dining at the restaurant while Taylor was working.
