This past summer our daughter, Ava Grace was diagnosed with Generalized Seizure Disorder. She suffers from Grand Mal Seizures.
You learn just how long 30 seconds REALLY is when you are watching someone you love have a seizure. That was the scariest day of my life as her mother.
After many tests she is now on a cocktail of medication to "get it right" and under control. She has went from a spunky NO fear child to a child who lives in fear. We do the best we can to assure her to live life like you did, but in all honesty I am scared too. Scared that I can not be there to protect her at all times. That is why I decided to get involved.
There is NO cure, but I will not allow this to take over her life. Please sponsor us and show her that no matter what life throws at you, you pick yourself up and overcome the obstacles.
