How to live with epilepsy

Epilepsy surgery is a huge milestone for a child with epilepsy. Though every child's experience is different, it can be helpful to hear from someone who has been through the surgery and recovery. Watch as Maddie and her family shares about the days following her surgery and what life is like for her now.
