Hannah Colfer Battled Epilepsy As A Child

Chris Colfer sister Hannah Colfer is an epilepsy survivor. Her mother appeared in a radio interview twelve years ago where she shared her daughter's struggles. 

She said that Hannah was perfectly fine until she was two and a half years old.

She started to have seizures, and doctors recommended putting her on medication and told the family that some kids may have it when they are growing up, and it may be healed after a few years. 

However, she fell into the 3 percent category where the medication does not work for seizures.

By 14, she had 50 seizures every hour, every day. She had to be taken to ICU every time she had seizures, which would make her unresponsive.
