News & Events

  • Josh's Story

    When 16-year-old soccer player Josh Canales started to feel ill in the middle of a school day last February, he told his school nurse that he felt “crummy.” It never crossed the mind of the high school freshman from Lynn, Massachusetts, that the medical device implanted in his brain at birth could be causing his symptoms.
