Our family has only had to deal with Epilepsy since November 7, 2006 when out of the blue our son Patrick had his first seizure. We went through the usual procedure of the emergency room, CT scan, MRI, EEG, finding a neurologist, and getting the diagnosis. Two weeks after the first seizure, came the second seizure, and starting on medication. Since November it has been a roller coaster of ups, downs, more seizures, hopes, and changes. Pat has done a wonderful job of getting used to the new facts of his life.

The day I found out about the Epilepsy Foundation was a lucky day for our family. There have been programs for Patrick, including the incredible summer camp. We have also attended the family support group and plan to hear upcoming speakers. All of these programs make us understand that we are not alone in dealing with this condition, and that has made us greatful. It is nice to know that as we continue along this difficult new path, there is support out there for our family.

Carol, Gene, and Patrick Justman
