Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome and Thank you for visiting this page!
My daughter, Kyra, and I are participating in Sharon's Ride this year to raise epilepsy awareness and to support our sweet friend Rachell.
Epilepsy is mor common than you think -
1 in 10 people will experience a seizure in their lifetime.
1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy.
More people live with epilepsy than with autism spectrum disorders, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy combined. Epilepsy is one of the world's oldest known medical conditions, yet people with epilepsy still face stigma and misunderstanding.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that can occur in anyone at any stage of life. The physical symptoms of a seizure depend on which part of the brain is impacted by excessive electrical discharges. Although most people think of a seizure as a full-body convulsion, seizures can manifest as brief muscle jerks, unconscious behaviors like picking at clothing or what appears to be a lapse of attention, like daydreaming.
One third of individuals are able to control their seizures with diet, medications and other therapies; others continue to struggle with an unexplained diagnosis. Much more research is needed to understand the cause of epilepsy and eventually find a cure.
