The Epilepsy Elephant in the Room
Diagnosed at age 5, Natalie Beavers addresses the giant learning curve that ensued for her and her family. She shares how self-advocacy ultimately led to creating a safe environment for herself and the epilepsy community. We’re super grateful for Natalie addressing the epilepsy elephant in the room: depression.
Natalie talks about her experiences, attempting to take her own life, and how she moved forward from that moment to create an empire that would ultimately serve others and give her purpose to get up every day.
