Because without feeling positive support in your everyday life, living with seizure disorder can be fatal.

Terrific Tonya Heathco's Seizure Journey.
Join us as NSDF Secretary Kerri Croake interviews Terrific Tonya as she shares her story with you.
Terrific Tonya's bio:
Originally from California I’ve enjoyed most of my life in Tennessee. Believe it or not, our first home in Tennessee had no and no indoor bathroom, just an outhouse!! Life as a teen in Tennessee in the 70′s was a treat. I loved the experience.
As a young adult, life changed. Not for better or worse, it just changed. A chronic brain abnormality, Periventricular Heterotopia, became active in my life producing up to 150 seizures a month. Now I have hope. The National Foundation raises awareness and support for all who live with seizure disorders, (patients and their caregivers). For all who wish to help, support, or are in need of information, please contact me.
As a young adult I was blessed with three precious jewels, Jesyka, Cory, and Zack. Later in life , I married my life partner, Scott. We now enjoy the company of our dog, Tiny,our kids and our grand-babies, Ana and Colton. Life in Tennessee is good. I love who I am, where I am, and what I do
