Team Nikki

I was diagnosed with epilepsy at seven years old. I have been in and out of hospitals (the food has really improved), on almost every drug out there, and been on the ketogenic diet twice. Growing up, I told people I 'had seizures' because no one knew what epilepsy was. My friends and family were (and continue to be) very supportive. Maybe that's why I never thought of myself as different. I had seizures-it was just something that happened. I never wanted to be different, either, and refused to use the elevator key I was given in middle school.
In high school I had brain surgery and got meningitis. I believe there is always a silver lining. Once when I was in the hospital as a child Miss America came to meet kids. She was supposed to meet my roommate, but since she was asleep so she met me. My head was shaved for the surgery (as a fifteen year old girl that was the worst part), but the fact that I couldn't do gym for a year and missed the mile run almost made up for it.
Today, I have a Master's in elementary education, am a certified teacher and work at a local elementary school.
I am glad today that there is more awareness than when I was growing up. I still find it hard to believe. I am happy to be walking to continue to raise awareness and money so hopefully one day we'll have a cure.
The Brower family will match all donations up to $1250.
