  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—At first glance, Leighanne Hastie looks like a regular 3-year-old.

    “Day to day, if you look at Leighanne, she looks like a normal little girl,” her mom, Heather, said. “She goes to gymnastics class on Mondays and she likes to go to her Bible class. She doesn’t look like a sick kid or one that has a disability.”

    The only difference comes in the form of a neurological disorder called epilepsy, which causes the toddler to have daily seizures.
