We spent the first 10 months of my daughter's life in and out of hospitals and emergency rooms. No one could explain the mysterious and frightening eye movements, loss of one side of her body and even losing the ability to hold her head up and swallow. She was treated for acid reflux for 10 months. We were ordering formula through a pharmacy at $40 a can, taking prevacid and Zantac but these episodes continued. A couple of EEGs and MRIs showed no seizure activity. As a mother, I knew something was wrong. My daughter was diagnosed with AHC in December 2012. We were scared, relieved, and confused. Doctors told us there was no real treatment and only about 300 cases in the US. We should contact AHC foundation for help. This foundation was all we had for support and answers. Everyone involved with this foundation bas been so helpful and all are dedicated to find a treatment and hopefully a cure. I've met and spoke to other moms who know exactly what I've been through and can share my pain and frustrations. Our kids with AHC are one in a millon and so is this foundation!!! With a little recognition and extra support this foundation would be unstoppable!
