Meg Busing knows that everything can change in an instant. After emerging from a
coma with a traumatic brain injury that would lead to a decade-long battle with intractable epilepsy, she found she was still herself – but also someone entirely new.
In the years since the accident, she has navigated a world that doesn’t always understand invisible challenges and boldly pursued her dreams – becoming a Registered Nurse, a wife and a mother of three. Now she’s sharing with others the value of becoming their own best advocate, building a strong community of support, and still finding things that they CAN do.
As founder and Executive Director of the Midwest YouCan Foundation, Meg has created Camp YouCan- a unique opportunity for kids and young adults with Epilepsy to come together to see all that they CAN do. With epilepsy, too many days are filled with reminders of what shouldn’t be done. Meg is on a mission to change that!
