Kurt started attending the Baylor Clinic at 8 years of age. He has basically grown up in the clinic and has been batting epilepsy ever since. He currently lives with his aunt following the death of his mother in 2008. As a result of consistently missing doses of anti-epilepsy medicine due to various reasons like irregular supply, Kurt has been having seizures more frequently ... affecting is education and physical activities.
Kurt managed to complete his primary exams 4 years ago but was unable to continue due to his deteriorating metal state in terms of concentration and ability to remember what he has been taught. His aunt decided to enrol him in a vocational institute to learn welding but he was eventually dismissed from the institution when he had a seizure in a metal workshop and fell on electric cables for fear that the next seizure could be fatal.
Now with a constant supply of medicines from AFCA, Kurt has been able to stabilize and reports fewer seizures than before. He now owns a bicycle and fetches water for people to earn a living. He is very thankful for the support he receives from the clinic.
