I'm a stay at home Mom, caring for my 43 year old son, Jason, who started seizuring in 1971 and continues to seizure on a daily basis despite medications, brain surgery and VNS implant.
My son Jason, is never one to complain, about anything. In fact over the years one of the things he has often said to others is, "You can choose to be happy or sad. I choose happy". Wonderful, simple advice from someone who certainly has reason to complain, but just smiles, instead. So, if Jason can still smile and choose happy after 40 years of seizures, I certainly can take a huge step out of my comfort zone, take a deep breath and be an advocate and a fundraiser for research for those, who like my Jason, live with Epilepsy.
