Millie was born a healthy child. Millie was able to walk and talk till 18 months.

In 2012, she suffered an hour and 45 minute tonic clonic sezuire. She was rushed to hospital where her body had shut down - she was grey. They managed to revive Millie but she was left in a coma and eventually intubabted and transferred to Evelina children's hospital where she remained in a coma for 48 hours. They did a number of tests which showed Millie had suffered brain damage to every cortex of the brain.

When Millie finally woke up she was a different little girl but we where so grateful she made it. Millie went on to stay at the Evelina for 6 months under going numerous tests - mri’s, EEG’s, muscle biopsy, skin biopsy’s. We where told Millie had suspected autoimmune encephalitis but a strain that has never been seen before.

She was started on ivig immunoglobulin which didn’t work, then started on plasma exchange which made Millie improve. She began to see again to smile again and to sit and to cry. Millie left the Evelina still having seizures which will carry on through out her life. She then went to the children’s Trust, a brain rehabilitation center where she learnt to crawl again and to feed.

Millie has been left with severe brain damage and needs to take 4 anti epileptics per day, even with this Millie can still have up to 30 seizures per day. She has been left wheelchair bound and unable to walk or talk.

Millie is still a happy little girl who loves life but unfortunately a lot of days she can barely stay awake due to the severity of her seizures.
