After nearly 2 decades of seizures, the last thing John Bowen thought would eventually cure his epilepsy was a trip to Disneyland. Yet, in a way, that’s pretty much what happened.
Morgan had her first seizure at age 10 while playing soccer. Her symptoms were similar to those of a concussion, but she had not been hit by a ball.
Aubrey Brown had a tonic/clonic seizure at age 12. At the hospital, she was told it was a “one and done” experience, but 2 weeks later she was back in the hospital with another tonic/clonic seizure.
Emma Whitaker deals primarily with absence seizures that occur at night. She was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 4, after her parents noted that she had episodes of slurred speech during which she would “doze off.”
