Operation Hope: Very Difficult Decisions

Go on yahoo.com and read the recent story about the girl who’s brain was on fire (that’s pretty much the title). She had seizures, hallucinations, loss of functioning, mood swings, psychosis, etc. They did a few tests and found out that’s what it was. It is hard to find a neurologist who knows how to look for and treat these things. You need to find the  best of the best, unfortu]natly. Dr. Rosario Trifiletti… Read more »
