Photo Stories: Brendan's Battle, looking for a cure
Brendan Staub's neurological disorder began with his first seizure at age 8. Doctors pointed to calcifications on his brain as the cause. Then, doctors found a brain tumor. Brendan had emergency surgery to remove it at age 9. But the seizures continued, sometimes as many as 50 a day. Five years later the doctors still aren't sure what's wrong. The only thing that seems to help are $15,000 Immuno Globulin treatments (IVIG) that he receives every three weeks.
