Sammi Gassel, a New Trier graduate and Wilmette native, was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 13.
She was able to get her seizures under control right awayand has only had a few since her diagnosis.
In college at Emerson University, Gassel volunteered with the Epilepsy Foundation.
“I just realized how many people had it so much worse than me,” Gassel said. “I’ve kind of always taken it for granted.”
