Eddie Zytner and Katie Stephens went to the Dominican Republic to make some amazing memories in a tropical setting. What they got instead was something they could have never imagined. The couple ended up contracting hookworms.

They posted their story on social media to spread awareness to travelers as well as doctors. “We want to make it known to more doctors what it is, what to look for and stuff because it took us a few trips to the hospital to find out what it was,” Zytner told CTV News.
