Meet Michael: A Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital Champion
When Michael was 13, he had a grand mal seizure at home.
“We were immediately filled with panic and fear,” says Gina, Michael’s mother. “We wanted to know what the cause was.”
He was diagnosed with a seizure disorder, following a series including an MRI of the brain, EEGs and blood work. Currently, he is followed by a pediatric neurologist and remains on medication. This also includes regular MRIs of the brain and EEGs.
Today, Michael is doing well and remains seizure free. In his free time, he loves drawing and making art.
