Description

In this episode, Mary Alessi and her daughter Lauren tell their story of receiving a life-altering diagnosis in Lauren's teen years, how their decision on whether to use medications affected their family, and how they moved forward to give Lauren the best chance at a fulfilled and happy life.

When a child gets a scary diagnosis from a doctor, fear can overwhelm a parent. It's then that parents face a hard choice - whether to place their children on medications that may affect their lives in unknown ways.

Christians especially often have opposing views when it comes to faith, family and medicine, and The Alessis had to navigate these same issues as a family when both Lauren and her sister Gabrielle were diagnosed with epilepsy in their teens.

You'll discover how to keep an open mind, and how to make the best choices for your family when you face a difficult diagnosis.
