Start of care
Zélica suffers from epilepsy. In one day alone, she had 5 tonic-clonic seizures in our presence. She lives with her two biological parents who take very good care of her, but who came to see us overwhelmed by their daughter’s condition. Zélica had her first epileptic seizure at the age of 5 months. When she was 6 years old, she was diagnosed with sickle cell disease AS. It is therefore possible that her epilepsy was due to a stroke, a common complication of sickle cell disease. We funded an electroencephalogram which revealed a severe status epilepticus. The neurologist adjusted her treatment, as it was not adapted. This allowed her seizures to diminish considerably. We continue to visit Zélica regularly and to support her medical care.
