Human Interest, Infantile Spasms

As covered by The Chicago Tribune, Miguel Cervantes—the lead in the Chicago cast of "Hamilton"—and his wife, Kelly, are opening up about their struggle with epilepsy, teaming up with CURE to raise funds to find a way to defeat epilepsy. Cervantes, who performs seven shows a week, has recorded a public service announcement about epilepsy and, along with fellow "Hamilton" cast members, is offering to go caroling with one set of raffle-winning donors, host another set of raffle winners backstage during a holiday performance of "Hamilton" and perform a private cabaret for a lucky charity auction winner with deep pockets (bidding starts at $25,000).
