Brian Guenther, with his wife Kim Waszak Guenther at his side, is surviving with a smile on his face after contracting flesh-eating disease, or necrotizing fasciitis.
Brian Guenther is one lucky guy.

He's lucky because he has a devoted wife and companion, because he has friends and neighbors who help him at the drop of a hat.

Or, so he thought.
