Hannah's Story

My daughter, Hannah started having seizures at the age of 3 1/2 years old. She will be 19 on July. She started the Ketogenic Diet at 5 years old, and was on the diet for 6 years. I really believe the diet works, I wish we could have got her on it sooner. Just like the movie, our Doctor said when I asked her about the Ketogenic Diet, that's somewhere down the line, it's a lot of work!! We found a new Doctor, he is wonderful. Hannah was seizure free for a year and a half on the diet, then she started cheating more and more. I have 2 other daughters, so it was hard for her. I found ice cream hidden in her closet, and other foods under her bed. She is still having seizures now, but she has come a long way. She is on 3 medications. She loves this movie, she would watch it over and over. I remember my husband and I watching it the first time, and crying while holding Hannah, it was what we were going through at the time. Here is a picture of my beautiful Hannah getting ready for her prom. She was lucky to have met Meryl Streep a couple of years ago, at a Charlie Foundation Event.
