“I admire a lot of things about her. I admire her perseverance, her talent, her strength. She’s my hero. I love her,” he said of Georgia.

Harrison added, “When you have a loved one who suffers from this disease, it can be devastating. You know how it affects their lives, their future, their opportunities and you want desperately to find mitigation. You want to find a way that they can live a comfortable and effective life.”

    Epilepsy is NOT a disease. People are so quick to call DISORDERS diseases. Diseases spread, disorders are usually from an injury, genetic or a from a condition. I was epileptic as a child from a head injury at 2 1/2. Fortunately, I grew out of it and had a normal EEG at 12. I hope his daughter can find a remedy (I’m leary about saying, ‘cure’) or treatment that ameliorates her symptoms. I know someone who went into UCLA for a week for testing; he’s suffered for 30 years from a car accident. He’s on a cocktail and hasn’t had a seizure in 8 months which is great since he had one a month prior.

    I hope she finds good treatment and keeps active, my friend’s son struggles with this ailment, he’s a good kid. A teen from my school had epilepsy and got lost in his small group on a hike, we prayed for him overnight and they found them the next day, he sadly died a few months later while in the surf.

    Well she has access and money, so hopefully she finds help.

    I’m sorry to hear that. Believe it or not, about a year ago I diagnosed my girlfriend’s grandson who was 3 at the time. We had been cyber bff’s for 4 years and all our communications are through e-mail. She told me that he was having weird momentary ‘blackouts’ while in a big store. I think the florescent lights was a trigger. They were going to take him to his pediatrician. I had asked if he had a head injury and sure enough about 2 weeks earlier he had a ‘bump on his head.’ I said, “skip the pediatrician and go straight to a neurologist’ and sure enough, he has epilepsy. He’s been on medication since then and hasn’t had any seizures since and they watch him closely.
