Wendy Station, Founder and President, Encephalitis Global

Patient Leader

When people see me standing at the front of a group speaking, it's easy for them to assume, "she looks okay, Nothing serious has ever gone wrong with her." When I speak, I want to tell people a story. A story of how low and desperate my situation was, and how far I have come. I want people to understand that you really cannot judge a book by its cover. Today my life is good. I've adjusted to things I cannot do, and learned how to do some things in a different way. I want the world to understand what folks like me have been through. Mainly, I want to provide hope for those who are just starting on this journey. I want to ensure they understand that they are not alone.
