Scott, 11; and his brother, Matthew, 7, both experience what are known as complex partial seizures. These can cause episodes where the boys will stare blankly, perform repetitive tasks or act out, their mother said.
Scott and Matthew attend Spring Lake Public Schools.
In the fall of 2010, Scott was named one of Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan’s Winning Kids. He was selected for his “courage to live life to the fullest with epilepsy,” Carrie said.
“He does not let his disorder interfere with going rock climbing, swimming, baseball or wanting to play football,” his mother said. “He just takes the necessary precautions to keep himself safe.”
