a foundation I hold close to my heart.
I was a patient at SickKids hospital for sick children in Toronto, ON from the age of 15 to when I graduated the hospital at nearly 18. I spent a lot of time there doing many test, I ended up having life changing brain surgery at the hospital to help with the terrible seizures I had been experiencing from the age of 10.
Long story short the surgery was a success!
I only have the amazing nurses, neurology department, my rehabilitation teachers and family to thank for getting me through the toughest years of my life.
I was seizure free for 5 years thanks to the surgery and now only have nocturnal ones once in a while which gives me the freedom to drive, something that was an impossibly before the surgery.
Lots of love - Emily
