What do you do when your five-month-old child has seizures that are only happening at night?
For writer Marc Palmieri, it was hard to know whether the strained movements and odd facial expressions were a problem for his young daughter Anna, when she had been a healthy, happy baby otherwise. Ultimately, Anna was diagnosed with complex partial seizures, frontal lobe Epilepsy and was able to live a fairly normal life despite having severe epilepsy until age 11. Join host Annette Hines in hearing the adrenaline rush of a nerve-racking, mystery pursuit for Palmieri's family to save Anna when epilepsy completely took control of her body resulting in a serious brain surgery. Palmieri shares how much he learned from Anna about pursuing dreams and overcoming the impossible.
