November is national Epilepsy month, and while many people are aware that people with Epilepsy have seizures, few know much more than that. Marcy Hendrickson was an active 16-year-old, on the swim team and track and basketball teams, and proud to have gotten her driver’s license three months earlier, when she had her first seizure. She was flown to the Medical Center in Omaha, where she spent 11 days. Marcy was eventually diagnosed with intractable Epilepsy, meaning her seizures were not controlled. Despite the efforts of numerous medical professionals, she had seizures daily, sometimes more than once per day. She went next to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., then to St. Louis Children’s Hospital, where they implanted a Vagus Nerve Stimulator in her chest in an attempt to control the seizures.
