Lake Bell Reveals 5-Year-Old Daughter Has Epilepsy

Lake Bell and her husband Scott Campbell’s 5-year-old daughter Nova has epilepsy, she just revealed.

“My daughter has epilepsy,” Lake posted on her Instagram. “It’s taken me a few months to gather the courage to post about it because I do not want to endorse it’s existence.”

She continued, “I also didn’t know why I should share it. Why tell a bunch of strangers? however in a time where we are so isolated I crave community. We all do. We want to be reminded we are not alone in any reality. And above all, I am grateful… Grateful to have a partner in @scottcampbell who, with his research and smarts, is giving these seizures a worthy adversary.”

Lake added, “Scott and I, along with the care of the incomparable @childrensla, will conquer them. For Nova… so she doesn’t have to cry in fear after she gets sucked into one. They are like invaders, that come on without invitation nor warning. We will fight for Nova. For her future. For tomorrow. For today. It’s a beginning of a long journey and I want/need to remember that I am not alone. And if you are dealing with a loved one with epilepsy, I get it… You are not alone.”

Our thoughts are with the family during this time and we hope a cure is found.
