70% of kids with Epilepsy respond favorably to their first medication. Joshua and Maya are among those kids who didn’t and instead have lived her whole life with multiple seizures almost every single day since infancy, as well as the powerful side effects of their many medications. Fortunately, there are doctors like Ian Miller at Jack Nicklaus Children’s Hospital who spend their entire careers unlocking the complex mysteries of diseases like Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome in order to help kids like Joshua and Maya, as well as their loved ones, live as normal a life as possible while simultaneously providing hope for a better future.
