Short Story

I was nominated to join the Warrior Troop and now I am on the Waiting List for my NillyNoggin EEG Cap!

I am SO excited to receive my NillyNoggin cap!

I’m even more excited to be part of the Warrior Troop at Hannahtopia.

The Troop is made up of amazing warriors like me – kids and adults who face medical challenges every day. Hannahtopia helps us by bringing fun, color and comfort to our lives. Creating positive happy moments. Happiness is SO important – it helps with the healing process!

My medical condition requires me to get EEG tests that are very medically sterile looking and often scary.

Sometimes an EEG is worn for days, in public, and people often stare. The NillyNoggin covers up this scary medical look. It puts a positive, happy twist on the EEG procedure that some of us have to get a lot. The NillyNoggin cap is comfortable and colorful! Lots of people will come up to talk with me ’cause it’s so cool! It will also give me confidence and comfort!

I am so excited to receive my NillyNoggin!

Can you help me? I’m on the Waiting List for my NillyNoggin.

There are A LOT of other amazing warriors waiting as well. If we can raise $40 then my NillyNoggin cap will be sponsored and I won’t have to wait!

Plus if we work together we can achieve even more! If we raise over $40, we can help sponsor NillyNoggin caps for other warriors on the Waiting List!

I would really like to help my warriors in the troop. I know what it means to fight every day and it’s easier with a troop of warriors fighting alongside me.

My daughter started having seizures at 4 months old. The original neurologist that we saw told me that her seizures were behavioral and that if I just paid my daughter more attention to her that she would stop misbehaving but he still put her on seizure medication. I was confused and upset and talked to her pediatrician after leaving about getting a referral to someone else. We were then referred to another neurologist a few hours from home who we absolutely love. She has tried very hard to get her records from the original neurologist but he won’t give them to her or me so we basically had to start over. Our new neurologist diagnosed her with epilepsy and absence seizures and decided that a med switch was warranted after an ambulatory EEG. After we took my daughter off of her original medication she returned to having the atypical seizures that originally took us to the neurologist. We are now preparing for our 3rd ambulatory EEG. My daughter is almost 4 and is amazing and takes everything in stride. She never fusses about all of the doctors appointments and procedures she has to have and is always smiling and lighting up the lives of all of the people who love her.
