Episode #133 - Best of Seizing Life 2023 featuring The Tsane Family/Dr. Dave Clarke/Mariah Mayhugh


This week on Seizing Life®, we revisit several compelling conversations from the past year in our Best of Seizing Life 2023 compilation episode.

In February of 2023, we spoke with 2021 Junior Olympic finalist Christiane Tsane and her parents about the impact of seizures on her education, training, and competition. In July, pediatric epileptologist Dr. Dave Clarke provided us with a thorough overview of the specialists and services available at comprehensive epilepsy centers. In August, Mariah Mayhugh spoke with us about her epilepsy journey–from hiding her childhood absence seizures to becoming a passionate and active advocate for epilepsy awareness, education, and representation.

These are just a few of the amazing people, informative conversations, and inspiring stories that we presented in 2023. We would like to thank all of the past year’s guests for sharing their personal stories, challenges, and triumphs or offering their insights and advice.
