Johnson Family eJourney

By Cortney Johnson

“How do you not tell someone Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) is a possibility?” Cortney’s mother, Peggy Sherrell, was her best friend. As a child, Cortney knew her mother had epilepsy, but she didn’t know SUDEP was a possibility. Losing her mother was the hardest day of Cortney’s life. Now, she’s encouraging people to talk about SUDEP to help end SUDEP. More information on these resources can be found here.
