A seizure can be one of the first signs a child has a brain tumor, and it can remain as a late-term effect following treatment. Since seizures are one of the most common side effects, it is important to understand them and how to take care of someone having a seizure.
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s on-demand webinar, Seizure First Aid Ready, Presented by The Epilepsy Foundation, features a presentation by Erin Fecske, a pediatric nurse practitioner in the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Children’s Mercy Kansas City. Watch this on-demand webinar to become seizure first aid ready and learn about seizures and epilepsy, the correct and incorrect steps for helping a person having a seizure, and when it is necessary to call emergency personnel (911) in the event of a seizure.
Thanks to the generosity of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s donors, this and all webinars are free for families and other members of the pediatric brain cancer community. If you have questions, need support, or would like a copy of the presentation slides, please email [email protected].
