William O' Leary's Brain Surgery

Notes from William's mom:

Willam showed delays in walking, at that time we were sent to a physical therapist. She was the first person to tell us he didn’t have a delayed nervous system he had seizures. This started our 9 year journey with specialists. William was diagnosed with multiple seizure disorders at 18 months old. He was having 30 seizures every 10 seconds. This massive amount of seizures delayed his speech and his ability to walk. We were told he would never walk. After failed Botox and casting he went under surgery to lengthen his Achilles’ tendons and more casts. Despite the doctors prediction he was walking within two months of the surgery. We prayed his seizures would be controlled as he had over come so much. Many years of failed treatments, medications, medical marijuana and the ketogenic diet we exhausted all other options. My son is the strongest happiest lil boy I know.

it has come to the point that William's best hope is to have brain surgery. This brave soldier has to have a part of his brain taken out at Denver Children's Hospital on April 20th.
