More than most families, the Ondas know about the affects of infantile spasms. Ty Onda, now 17, had his seizures stopped as an infant, although he still suffers from the underlying cause of his disease, tuberous sclerosis. Ty, a competitive swimmer and good student, heads to college next year in the hopes of studying biology.
For new parents, watching a young baby's every movement typically brings much joy. But when a baby exhibits signs and symptoms of a serious neurological condition such as infantile spasms, that joy can quickly turn into concern about the baby's well-being. In this video you will hear from child neurologists who treat children with infantile spasms. And you will hear from families who have experienced this disorder first-hand. We hope their stories and perspectives inspire you and encourage you to seek more information.
