To talk with Ella Romig today is like talking with a typical 11-year-old girl. She’ll list all the things she likes to do — volleyball, reading, dancing, singing and more.
It wasn’t more than a year ago, though, that Ella could only imagine doing some of those things. She suffered from epilepsy brought on by tuberous sclerosis, a rare genetic disease that can cause benign tumors in the brain.
But thanks to a surgical procedure she underwent in Cleveland last September, the West Lafayette girl can enjoy a lifestyle free of seizures.
