I am raising money for a new treatment for my son, Damian. His insurance doesn't cover it. He was diagnosed with epilepsy a bout 4 years ago. His seizures have increased this year. I have done everything I can think of.
Damian was diagnosed with epilepsy about 4 years ago. This year his seizure activity has increased a lot. We have been in and out of his pediatrician's, the specialists, the ER, and outpatient testing facilities. They have not been able to tell me what is causing the increase or why the topography has changed. As a parent, I feel helpless in this situation, powerless even. These seizures cause him to lose the most basic skills such as washing his body or putting lotion on. The scariest was this was year when he fell, and he said that his brain wasn't telling his body to get up. Recently at school, I had to pick him up. He said his mind was playing with his reality and that his eyes were vibrating. It’s hard maintaining my calm when inside all I feel is panic. I found a clinic here in Orange County, Amen Clinic, that specializes in in-depth brain analysis. I spoke to someone there recently who told me that we have to pay the amount in full before they can schedule anything. I am hopeful that they may be able to give us some answers as well as treatment to help Damian live a typical childhood. Thank you for taking the time to read this. May God bless your kindness and multiply it!
