Hello I am Tae founder and CEO of MFSE Foundation Inc, I am going to briefly tell you my story and why it was time to stop hiding and make a stand. All my life I have battled with epilepsy and all the hardships I have faced with it. Being denied jobs, being picked on, people not wanting to be around you because of their ignorance's due to the disorder, black outs, waking up to bruised backs and sides from falls, totaling my car while coming home from school, and if you had seen it, you would of probably say to yourself theres no way she made it, but with the grace of God I did.
The week prior to May 28, 2009, I had been having several blackouts and seizures, so on that day I just thought the same. The only thing that made this strange was the nose bleed before this seizure they were clots. Later after that seizure I woke up in the hospital, but when I did awake there was no feeling on the left side of my body. So through numerous tests it was shown that I had several seizures back to back that lead to a minor stroke.
Then on March 18, 2011 something about that day just wasn't right I just did not feel like myself. I felt like my body was just floating, so I felt as usual a seizure which was what I had until I had fell and hit my head and when I woke up from my coma, I was unable to walk, talk, write, or speak. I had, yet another stroke I knew at this moment something has got to be done to save lives and make changes.
The sad reality is there is still a lot of work to be done. We still dont
know what truly causes all seizures and strokes, and we dont know
how to prevent them. People are still dying, and struggling with life
in our own neighbors, and nationwide the situation becomes even
It is now time for us to see this fight through so that no one ever has
to fear epilepsy or a stroke again.
