Patient of the Month: Jayden

December 2021

Jayden came to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital after his parents, Dayse and Oscar, who are Nicklaus Children’s nurses, noticed he was suffering from seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Led by Dr. Parul Jayakar and Dr. John Ragheb, our multidisciplinary care team provided treatment and eventually surgery, to quell the seizures and get Jayden on the path to recovery. Today he continues to see his doctors for regular check-ups, and most importantly, is #JaydenStrong. Watch his inspiring story and read more about Jayden.
