2016 Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day Hero: Kailyn


When she was just 14-months-old, Kailyn was diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. Many doctors were convinced that the treatment for Kailyn’s condition was to merely adjust her medications, the varieties as well as the amounts. As time went on, Kailyn was placed on more and more medications; at one point in time she was taking 19 pills per day. Kailyn’s seizures began lasting longer durations and occurring more frequently than ever before, indicating that this treatment approach was not working.
