ST. MARYS — On May 18, a New Bremen family will be one step closer to their goal of making life easier for their 1-year-old son, Oliver.
Oliver Dietzman was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy, in September. His first seizure, which happened in June, lasted an hour and 15 minutes, Allison Dietzman said.
“My brother has seizures so I’d seen them before (and) knew what to do,” she said. “(But Oliver’s) seizures are becoming harder and harder to control.”
