I have my sights set on a big party next spring for my daughter, Mareena. Her birthday, you might ask? In many ways it’s a re-birthday: a celebration of Mareena living without seizures longer than she endured them. It has been a long, difficult journey to reach this milestone, one that at times seemed impossible. But with deep love, persistence and a tremendously experienced physician and health-care team, we have had nearly five seizure-free years, and our lives are more normal than ever before.
