Heartbreaking news pushed special needs mom Kelly Cervantes to inspire positive change

By: Start TV Staff     Posted: January 22, 2019, 4:39PM

Kelly Cervantes is an epilepsy advocate, board member of the non-profit Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE), and mother of two (Jackson and Adelaide). In May 2016, Kelly and her husband Miguel (who stars as Alexander Hamilton in Hamilton: An American Musical in Chicago) received heartbreaking news: Baby Adelaide was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a severe form of childhood epilepsy. "There is only so much we can do to help Adelaide," Kelly told Start TV, "but I can go out this afternoon and talk to someone about epilepsy and try and raise money for research."

Today Kelly works tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for the disease. She documents her path as a special needs mom in her blog and launched a podcast in January 2019 with CURE called "Seizing Life." She said this experience has taught her that "change isn't bad. Change is what you make of it."

I was lucky to research how love spell can mend broken relationships on Quora. My research leads me to dr. Wakina who through his powerful spell saved a lot of relationships and marriages. I didn’t mind but sent him an emotional and mentally drained and broken feeling via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) I expected the spiritual father to cleanse my partner of all negativity towards our union because it’s depressing when you’re always at fault, everything you do is wrong in his eyes and he compares you to his exes. He blames me for being a hindrance to his success or where he wants to be at his age in life, he looks at me hatefully because of his own insecurity and guilt which I don’t even know. I was scared of him to be not pleased with me.
It’s all story now after a love spell from the grand master of spells Dr. Wakina’s intervention. No more fears, negativity, lack, depression and hate in my marriage, they were renewed with LOVE. All thanks to Quora site and Dr. Wakina.
