WHAT: The Pediatric Victory Foundation was created two years ago after Monique and Howie Rosenthal discovered their daughter Blayke had been experiencing 35 seizures a day, stiffness in walking, blackouts, extreme memory loss and hallucinations. As a result of their very sick daughter they turned to the UCLA Pediatric Neurology team for
answers. With the help of Dr. Sankar, Rubin Brown Professor and Chief Division of Pediatric Neurology and his team Blayke was diagnosed with a very rare disorder called autoimmune epilepsy, a disease discovered less than ten years ago. The Rosenthal’s realized their calling card was to help the research and the commitment of the team and
help them save other children’s lives.
