I discovered something I’ve been saving for nearly 8 years. It’s a wire chest full of get-well cards and notes that people sent me in early 2003 when I got sick and received my diagnosis of encephalitis and meningitis. There are literally hundreds of cards, emails, photos, notes.
An Oakwood Hospital (Michigan) pediatric neurologist has allegedly been diagnosing children, hundreds of them, with Epilepsy…FOR CASH. And these kids do not have Epilepsy.
How can you help those who will be diagnosed with Epilepsy just this year? Statistics show 200,000 people will be diagnosed in 2010. Those of us who live with the disease each day know what we are dealing with…but how about those ‘newbies’ to this life?
