This is my sister. Being born with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex,
or TSC for short, my sister deals with epilepsy and other complications on a daily basis. To manage the chronic disease that has disables
her way of living, you have to find methods of maintaining a stable lifestyle. We use Vagus Nerve Stimulation therapy. The VNS sends regular mild pulses of electrical
energy to the brain via the vagus nerve. We can also manually activate the VNS by swiping
a magnet bracelet across her chest when we see a seizure is about to kick in. Technology is amazing! It has truly elevated my view on different
types of treatments. While its to some extent able to prevent epileptic
seizures. More importantly, this kind of technology
makes it easier to maintain a healthy everyday life for my sister but also for our entire
family.
