Dear Harrison Ford —

Epilepsy just isn’t spoken about too typically in Hollywood. As a matter of reality, it’s a medical situation that’s prevented just like the plague that it isn’t. In some nations of the world, it’s handled like a plague or a punishment at the results of a sin inflicting that individual to be mistreated or to be ignored of life’s most joyous of moments. Time with household, friendships, marriage, having youngsters and far more. Moments we might at occasions take as a right.

Not lots of people find out about epilepsy. That epilepsy can occur to anybody, at anytime. Regardless of age and even race.

I was confronted with my first seizure on the age of sixteen. At the age of twenty-two, they got here again completely. I was driving to buy birthday presents for my husband and Christmas presents for household. Thank God I solely struck a tree and my life was spared. My husband and I had solely been married 4 months. This brief documentary is the story of my journey:

I need to thanks for talking out in help of your daughter Georgia which could be very a lot so inspiring to all these preventing the identical battle. Too, you’re serving to within the mission to make epilepsy extra properly-recognized to those that know nothing or little or no. A highlight is required to be forged on this situation nationwide and worldwide.

“When you could have a beloved one who suffers from this illness, it may be devastating. You know the way it impacts their lives, their future, their alternatives and also you need desperately to seek out mitigation. You need to discover a means that they will stay a cushty and efficient life.”

You converse the phrases of tens of millions of spouses, mother and father, and caregivers all over the world. Becoming recognized with epilepsy flipped my world the wrong way up. It was as if an earthquake had struck in each my husband and I’s lives and we have been left to select up the items and begin anew. Unsure of the longer term. Fearful. Heartbroken. Yet our will to not surrender, to struggle, to rise above remained, and so we did. We turned stronger individuals than we ever had earlier than.

We turned impressed to advocate for the situation. Creating an Organization, The Epilepsy Network (TEN) which has an incredible quantity of help from all over the world. Creating a weblog talking about my journey with epilepsy.

Fighting again tears, Ford stated, “Dr. Orinn Devinsky, who’s an expensive pal, made the analysis: epilepsy. He prescribed the suitable treatment and remedy; she has not had a seizure in eight years.”

With the appropriate remedy, alongside hope, religion and help, I know seizure-freedom could be achieved and I am so thrilled that Georgia has not had a seizure in eight years! It is my hope that she stay that means.

It can also be my hope that in Hollywood, epilepsy is embraced, talked about, and supported simply as a lot as different medical circumstances are. It just isn’t a medical situation to be feared or ignored. Not a situation to be brushed underneath the rug. Not a situation to be stored quiet about.

Again, thanks for shining a light-weight on epilepsy. Having loving, caring help is astounding drugs in itself. Not solely motivational and inspirational in your daughter Georgia however all who’re preventing epilepsy too.

Take care and God bless,


Love, Family, Hollywood, Writing, Harrison Ford
