A Michigan man whose wife died of fungal meningitis says he's being treated for the same illness.
65-year-old George Cary says he began having severe headaches Friday, days after being told that initial tests early this month showed no evidence of meningitis.
Cary and his wife, Lilian, were treated at a Brighton-area clinic for back and neck pain.
They received injections of the contaminated steroids made by a Massachusetts pharmacy, now blamed for more than 300 cases and more than 20 deaths nationwide.
Lilian Cary died September 30th.
George Cary says he's feeling much better after three days of treatments.
