Jillian had her first epileptic seizure when she was only a year old. In the early stages of her life, she was continuously falling over, and her seizures would occur whenever she had a high fever. After numerous emergency room visits, she had an electroencephalogram (EEG)… it revealed that Jillian had epilepsy. She suffers from two types of seizures – grand mal seizures and atonic seizures.
At the age of 3, Jillian was also diagnosed with congenital Lyme disease. She would continuously get sick, and she was tired most of the time. Because of her fatigue, Jillian would sleep most of the day and wouldn’t have the energy to do her favorite activities.
Despite her hardships, Jillian maintains her sense of humor and sweet disposition. She loves dressing up like her favorite Disney Princesses and shopping for new outfits and shoes.Kids Wish Network fulfilled Jillian’s wish by providing her with a generous gift card for her to spend on whatever her heart desires.
