Meet Brianna. This 9-year-old Brewer girl is tackling epilepsy.
“It’s really sad and scary because I was afraid I would have no friends if I told people,” Brianna Jerome shares. “They would get scared of me.”
“It really took a long time to convince her that there were other children around here that have epilepsy because we didn’t know anybody and we didn’t have any other families to connect with,” says Marian, Briana’s mother.
The family hopes to change that by starting a local support system for families with epileptic children.
