Tracy Dixon-Salazar was a stay-at-home mom until her toddler, Savannah, started experiencing uncontrolled and frequent seizures, which turned out to be symptoms of Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. In search of treatment, Dixon-Salazar set out on a journey that took her from junior college to a Ph.D. in neuroscience. As a genetic researcher, Dr. Dixon-Salazar has found a way to reduce Savannah's seizures dramatically.
