Natallie ~ Giving Hope

After a typical pregnancy, young Natallie was welcomed into the world on August 1, 2012.  Within the first five weeks, her parents began to notice their infant develop twitching movements.  After watching with a close eye, they decided to make a doctor's appointment.  What they found out changed their lives forever.  After much testing and observation, the caregivers at Avera Children's Hospital informed the new parents that their infant was having seizures.  The cause was unknown.  After further testing, Natallie was eventually diagnosed with malignant migrating partial seizure disorder.  Currently, Natallie has proven to be a fighter, despite frequent hospital stays and emergency visits.  Her family remains optimistic for her future and credits the expertise of Avera Children's Hospital for the quality care they've received.
