A Veteran Living With Epilepsy
Hamill Cruz joined Epilepsy Alliance Florida in May of 2019. Hamill is a veteran who served in the Marine Corps. In June of 2017, Hamill suffered from his first seizure. Unsure of what was happening to him he followed a year of hospitalizations. Due to his constant hospitalization, he lost his employment and his insurance. His world turned upside down. Thanks to Epilepsy Alliance Florida, he qualified to be a Medical client and received constant Neurological care. He has been able to have access to his Anti-Epileptic Medications reducing the number of hospitalizations. He has learned about his condition and gotten to know his triggers to assist him with managing his condition better. Hamill took advantage of attending our support group and attended Epilepsy’s Florida events such as the client dinner, where he bonded and found a comfort in other’s who experience the same situation as him.
