   I've been lucky to know some awesome people in my life, and the Bartleson Family is included in those people. This family now needs some help. Please consider their son's story:


     On March 22, 2014, Katy and Mitch welcomed little Liam to the world, and a new family was born in the process. Little did they know their family would be spending the next five weeks in the ICU at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City. Liam was being treated for benign familial neonatal seizures.
    Initially Katy and Mitch were told he'd more than likely outgrow the seizures, but Katy and Mitch weren't satisfied, and they kept looking, trying to find an answer and a solution for their son.
    Within weeks the seizures changed and Liam was back at University of Iowa Hospital once again. By now this little Superman had been enduring up to and sometimes more than 50 seizures a day. Liam underwent two days of EEG and a PET scan, which ultimately led to the diagnosis of an extremely rare disease called Malignant Migrating Partial Seizures in Infancy.
      This rare disease was only recently discovered, in 1995, and has since only been documented in 100 cases. The seizures appear in multiple locations in the brain and migrate from one region to another, so surgery is not an option. Currently, Liam has 20-30 or more noticeable seizures a day, but also suffers from silent seizures, which can only be detected through the EEG. Affected babies will often lose both mental and motor skills that are developed after birth, such as eye contact, controlling head movement, and weakened muscle tone. The vast majority of children with this disease do not develop the ability to speak.
     Liam is currently taking four different epileptic medicines and just began new treatments of a Swedish drug called Stiripentol. This new drug is not covered by insurance, and is extremely expensive.
    Along with the travel every 4-6 weeks to Iowa City for EEG monitoring, and the cost of the stay, this young family needs some help.

I'm in a position to give that help!

With your help, by either purchasing the boxed set, or spreading the word, we can sell enough books worldwide to help with a big chunk of Liam's expenses for for near future.
