Francesca’s Story: I have a type of epilepsy that was inherited from my mother’s mother. My grandmother was born with PCDH19 epilepsy.
When my seizures returned after 10 years, I realized who I wanted to be by my side as my partner for the rest of my life. My epilepsy had put that into stark relief. My seizures helped me realize just how important it is to have people who love and support you when dealing with a condition like epilepsy.
