About me

Location United States
Introduction My son Calvin was born six weeks early with significant neurological problems of unknown origin. When he turned two he was diagnosed with epilepsy, which eclipsed all other adversity he'd encountered. No drug or dietary treatment has completely controlled his seizures. I write about the challenges we encounter, and the great perspective about the world we gain as a result. I post something several times weekly in an effort to increase epilepsy awareness, dispel the myths, promote understanding and inspire empathy, all in hope of a cure. I sometimes write about politics, racism and other social injustices.
Interests writing, photography, epilepsy research and advocacy, reading, gardening
