Case Study: Rinnie Pegg, 5

Published On 03/07/2016

At 3 years old, Rinnie Pegg was diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis, a disease that causes tumors to form on the organs. Doctors tried to control her seizures with medicine but when they were no longer effective, Rinnie’s parents, Elizabeth and Clark decided to send their daughter to Le Bonheur’s TSC Center of Excellence for brain surgery and remove the tubers. Since her January surgery, Rinnie has been seizure free. “Rinnie is just doing amazing,” Elizabeth said. “She is consistently so much happier since the surgery.”
