Sara received treatment so that she can live without seizures.

“We performed an extensive evaluation to determine the type of seizures that Sara was suffering from,” reports our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq. “Based on this analysis, we started her on medication and, since starting the medication, she has had no more seizures at all.”

“Her mom reports that she has a lot more energy, is smiling and happy, and seems to be developing more normally. We’ll continue to follow along to make sure she continues to stay well,” continues Wuqu’ Kawoq.

Meet Sara! She’s an energetic three-year-old girl from Guatemala who likes to laugh, sing, and play in the house.

Sara has seizures several times a week which makes her lethargic and sleepy, and is also delaying her motor and cognitive development. Sara’s mother has brought her to see specialists, however cannot afford the tests or the medication to control seizures.

With $745, our medical partner Wuqu’ Kawoq will be able to give Sara seizure treatment. This includes Sara’s seizure workup which will determine which medication and plan is best to diminish the seizures. Her growth and development will continue like any other child. Sara’s mom wants help so her child can, “can grow up healthy and go to school.” Together we can make that happen!
