        @NewsSarah has a unique experience of how her epilepsy diagnosis came to light…literally. A former news anchor, Sarah had a seizure while on air, which ended up costing her job. During her two-year search for a diagnosis, Sarah also lost her license, kids, and marriage. She shares with us how she got to where she is today: working at a job she loves, running marathons, and—most importantly—being a mother to her children.
