Fride’s Story

Fride is a 2 years old girl from Norway. We received the KCNA2 diagnosis during the summer when she was just a year old. We had already received a diagnosis of Epilepsy when she was 7 months old. She has had several seizures that lasted for up to an hour. First they startet focal and went over to tonic-chronic, after a white the seizures developed into generalized ones.

Fride has challenges to walk properly because of bad balance, we are still not 100% sure about the reason but are slowly getting the answer we need. It’s either ataxia or spasticity.

Because of how young she is, it is difficult to see how the KCNA2 will affect her in the future, but so far she is doing so well. She is a happy girl that’s going to kindergarten, love’s play with her older sister and wants to explore the world
