After his 5-month-old daughter, Adelyn, was diagnosed with the rare brain disorder Aicardi syndrome, Trent Stroup immediately took action. He and his wife, Tina, visited several clinics to try to find the one best suited to treat their daughter. Since deciding on the Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center, Stroup has made it his mission to raise money for the center - not only to help his daughter, but also to get closer to finding a cure for all children affected by the disorder.
