Laura is a mother of two and a 4th grade teacher. Today she is seizure free.
She grew up not knowing when a seizure would take place. She was not in control of her own body and not aware of when a seizure would take place. Would it be when she was teaching her 4th Grade class? Would it be when she was holding one of her children?
Laura wanted help. She didn't want to live in fear of not knowing when a seizure would happen. The medicine helped to control the seizures but she didn't want to be restricted to taking medicine every day.
She sought out the help of Epilepsy specialists at Missouri Neurosciences Center who discovered that her seizures were caused by scar tissue in her brain. It was recommended that she undergo surgery to remove the excess tissue. Laura decided after careful consideration to have the scar tissue removed. Today she is seizure free.
