    “Cure” is a big word, but some kids are making amazing progress. At 15 months my boy lost all speech, lost his eye, and developed seizures. Today he’s in a mainstream class, off IEP, and in gifted and talented. Some issues remain but wow.

    Don’t give up, your boy needs you.

    My very best to you
