Stacie Marie's Success Story

Published on: 12/09/2011
“Staci Marie was born a healthy child. One Saturday afternoon, she developed a high fever, and then became comatose for three months. When Staci awoke, she could not speak or walk. She had brain damage after contracting encephalitis. At age 6, Staci developed seizures, which were controlled until the age of 9. Then, she began having uncontrollable seizures that no doctor could seem to stop, and she almost died several times. Her doctor in Minneapolis referred us to Dr. Trevor Resnik at Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital. He found the right combination of medication, and today Staci is in school and functioning well. Despite her delays, she is able to enjoy a high quality of life thanks to Dr. Resnik and his great knowledge. We love Dr Resnik!"
