The Charlie Foundation is a wonderful organization that has helped shed light onto the benefits of the ketogenic diet. They recently held a symposium in Chicago and although I would have LOVED to attend - it was simply impossible.
Meryl Streep who played the influential role in the movie, First Do No Harm was honored at this years event.
I've never watched this movie. People talked to me about watching it when Ben was so bad off, but I could never bring myself to do it. I was living the nightmare and the thought of watching it on TV was just too much for me to think about.
I found this tonight- a tribute to Meryl Streep from this past weekend's event and it is powerful! Listening to these moms and dads talk about their experience and watching the clips from the movie - wow.
It's hard to believe that we may have actually moved to the other side of such a dark place. Ben is doing so good! Watching the seizures on this clip make my heart literally stop. I hope I never see another seizure for the rest of my life.
I wish I could have gone...just hearing from other moms - I can't even explain what I'm feeling.
So, thank you Meryl...thank you Abrahams family...thank you to the Charlie Foundation...thank you to all of the other moms and dads who continue to offer guidance and support to one another...
