Meet Kim M., Parent Mentor at Akron Children's Hospital

Kim M.

Kim's Story

Faced with many challenges since his first seizure at 9 months old, Luke continues to smile through it all! He has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, CVI, scoliosis and mitochondrial disease. Luke has been hospitalized many times in his 18 years for seizures, lung infections, surgery complications and other issues. Despite continued seizures, being non-verbal, having vision issues, and muscle tone issues, Luke has been able to learn to use communication devices and can walk with assistance! All of this, thanks to help from the amazing therapy department at Children's. I’m a huge fan of the hospital and hope to be able to help other parents with the experience I have gained during my son’s journey.
