My daughter, Tina was diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 6. Unfortunately, her seizures were never under control. All her neurologist would do was up dosages and add medications. I was very uneducated about Epilepsy at that time and would just agree with her doctor. Tina finally became seizure free on August 3, 2006. She died in her sleep from a seizure at the age of 24. My husband and I have adopted her daughter, Nicole. Nicole has recently been diagnosed with Epilepsy. I am now am very educated on Epilepsy and have dedicated my life to raising awareness and funds for this disorder. I feel that if I can help save one life, Tina's death will have a purpose.
