Mike Knox is an author, caregiver and father to a child who has drug-resistant epilepsy. Mike’s daughter, Vivien, started having seizures before she turned two and is now six years seizure-free using VNS Therapy, which is a medical device designed to prevent seizures before they start and stop them if they do.

Mike is passionate about ending the stigma surrounding epilepsy and authored a book, “Vivien’s Rain: My Daughter’s Battle with Epilepsy.” Mike continues to spread epilepsy awareness by working to pass a law for police and law enforcement in California to be trained on seizures and seizure first aid.
