PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Surf City community came together on Sunday to make sure the wishes come true for a teen they don't even know. 16-year-old Alexis has a rare and deadly form of epilepsy, and doctors say it's going to get worse fast.
"The doctors tell us it will progressively continue to get worse," explained her mom, Laurie Howard. "There is no cure for it, nothing we can do, they say we have to be prepared." Alexis started having seizures when she was 15 and doctors explained the severity of her diagnosis in March.
