After her first seizure at seven years old, Carol decided to keep her epilepsy a secret. For more than 50 years, she kept her struggle hidden until she met other patients and families in the CURE community. After this, Carol realized she needed to share her voice, advocate for those suffering, and show others it’s possible to live a productive life with epilepsy. And now, with her many accomplishments, she is living proof of this vision. Carol continues to fight for a cure and to eliminate the stigmas so many face.
