Seizing Life > Fight Stigma: You’re Never Too Young To Be a Hero

Henry Iida is a teenager and student on a mission to help find a cure for epilepsy and fight stigma. After having a seizure in gym class while his classmates watched, Henry (with the help of his mom, Nancy), started an initiative called Henry’s Heroes to bring his peers together in the fight against epilepsy.

In this episode of Seizing Life, learn how Henry built his team of volunteers, fundraises for epilepsy organizations, and battles against epilepsy stigma.
