Minute by Minute:
A documentary about living with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS)
Minute by Minute is intended to raise awareness of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a rare and severe form of epilepsy that accounts for as few as 1%-4% cases of childhood epilepsy.
LGS is one of the most complex epileptic disorders to treat and manage. The documentary features two families living with LGS and offers perspectives from physician experts and patient advocates.
Physician experts John Pellock, MD, Chair, Division of Child Neurology, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Tracy Glauser, MD, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, discuss the syndrome, its diagnosis, and various approaches to treatment.
Patient advocates Patricia Gibson, MSSW, ACSW, Wake Forest University, who has worked extensively with families to provide education and resources to help them cope with LGS, and Christina SanInocencio, President, LGS Foundation, who has been passionately creating a voice for the LGS community, offer their perspectives.
