Angelina's Story

This is our "Angel" Angelina Schmitt. Angelina was diagnosted with infantile spasms at 4 months old. We first used ACTH and lived with the unbearable side effects of this drug. We tried every seizure medicine including medicines from outside of the USA and a partial corpus callosum brain surgery. With the help of Dr. Harry Chugani and our dietitian Ms. Rebecca Sparks of Children's Hospital of Michigan Angelina has been seizure free for over 2 years with the Ketogenic Diet. Currently she is receiving therapies in her new school and her twin sister Alexandra and all of her family are all very proud of her and her progress she makes every day. We love you Angelina.
