Amy Osborn did not realize how much her health issues had affected her life. But a month after being seen by renowned epileptologist David Millett, M.D., she got an inkling.
“My husband hugged me and said, ‘I have my wife back,’” says Osborn, 38, of Newport Beach.
The high-powered media executive suffered a brain tumor in 2009 that she thought would be the worst thing to happen to her. While on a business trip to Cleveland, she woke up alone in a conference room in a pool of blood. She thinks she hit her head on a marble table, but doesn’t know how. A medical team at the Cleveland Clinic put 18 stitches in her head and assessed her before she returned to Orange County.
“They said, ‘You need to go right to the Hoag Neurosciences Institute and see a brain doctor,’” Osborn says.
Instead, she flew home and threw a bridal shower for a friend.
