Rasmussen's Syndrome: Cameron Mott Has Half Her Brain Removed To Combat Rare Condition That Causes Seizures (VIDEO)
Cameron Mott's parents knew something was terribly wrong when their daughter began having seizures, up to 10 a day, at the age of three. After three of years of constant seizures, Cameron's cognitive development was slowing and she was barely talking.
Doctors discovered that she had a rare condition known as Rasmussen's syndome, which causes destruction on one side of the brain. Neurologists at Johns Hopkins University qualified her to undergo a daring and new surgery called a hemispherectomy, in which the damaged half of her brain would be removed.
The "Today Show" interviewed Cameron and her family about her extraordinary journey.
