National Seizure Disorders Foundation Share Your Story project presents a heartfelt memorial to Carolina Barcelos Carneiro de Oliveira Miller, lost to SUDEP at the young age of 25. Her husband Eric Miller brings us her story and what he did to cope with the grief and hold her memory in our hearts for a lifetime.
SUDEP is a medical mystery in which sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients takes the lives of our loved ones for no apparent reason. At this time there is no warning sign or trigger, no cure, and little research for SUDEP.
Eric shares how he dealt with losing Carolina to SUDEP:
“Since Carolina’s passing, I’ve really thrown myself into working on Candlelight Concert in her honor. It’s certainly a difficult and tragic thing to be torn in half like that. And so I’ve diligently been working to raise awareness about epilepsy and specifically SUDEP in the hopes that no one else would ever experience such an immense and tragic loss. ”
