I am Stephanie's aunt and I'm proud of how she continues to fight her battle with seizures. The hospital has helped her a great deal to be able to do that. They have never given up on her so she didn't need to give up on herself. Thanks to the research continually being done we all continue to have hope that Stephanie will one day will be cured. She would make a great hire for the hospital because of the heart she has for others suffering as she has.
