Kelly Cervantes is an epilepsy advocate and board member of the non profit, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE). Kelly, her husband Miguel (who starred as Alexander Hamilton in Hamilton and will take over the title role on Broadway) and their son Jackson lost their daughter and sister in October of 2019 after an almost 4 year battle with infantile spasms, a severe form of childhood epilepsy.

Kelly continues to work tirelessly to raise awareness and funds for the disease. She documents her journey in her blog, Inchstones, and launched a podcast in January 2019 with CURE called "Seizing Life."

These segments were taped and produced prior to the loss of her daughter in late November of 2018.
