Emily has had epilepsy for 8 years but was officially diagnosed about 6 years ago. She has Generalized Epilepsy with Intractable Epilepsy.
She is currently on two different medications to keep her seizures at bay. She has gone from having 3-5 seizures a day that would last about 5 minutes each to now having about 1-2 seizures a week that last less than a minute. She enjoys helping others, talking about what it's like to live with epilepsy and make connections with children around the world with her #EpiBear project.
