Pediatric Epilepsy Day: Resolution Reception, HR-114. Please join ASM Cecilia Aguiar-Curry and Mickie’s Miracles. Monday, August 20th, 5:30 PM, program starts promptly at 6:00 PM
For the past few weeks, I have delved through old videos and pictures of Mickie during her early battle with Epilepsy to provide content for the Mickie’s Miracles website.
I have a long time friend whose invitations’ elicit a fast response from me. Ninon has had this effect on me since we first met in LA while working in the entertainment industry. She is a political sage and an intuitively powerful networker. So when she invited me to attend Senator Barbara Boxer’s Annual Women Making History Luncheon in Beverly Hills on August 23, I gladly accepted.
This past Monday I had the honor of making a presentation to an incredible group of special needs parents and caregivers in our community. I had been looking forward to this opportunity for months. This organization was created by a friend and pediatric nurse who witnessed a major gap in services for special needs children.
I believe in my heart Mikayla would not be alive if we had not found Dr. Mary Zupanc, Chair of Pediatric Neurology and the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at CHOC Children’s Hospital.
