Dravet syndrome

David Emmanuelle

When Barbara Ann Cooper was pregnant with her two-year-old daughter, David Emmanuelle, doctors told her things did not look good for the baby. They listed a host of potential diagnoses, from Down’s syndrome to heart disease. Barbara was told it was likely her daughter would be stillborn. But she never gave up. Even when she could feel her child trembling inside her womb, she refused to believe all was lost.
