Prodigy fights through mystery parasite

In 2001, a cryptosporidium outbreak caused about 1,300 people to fall ill – but since the Knutson family had followed the boil water advisory as soon as they’d heard about it, when six-year-old Cole got sick they thought it was something else. Especially since, out of nowhere six months later, he started to recover.

“Periodically through my life I’d get really, really, really sick, definitely beyond a cold, and then we would go to the doctor, get antibiotics and it would get better,” Cole said.
