As a former TV producer and music entrepreneur, Nicole Zeitzer Johnson never thought she would be taking the world of neurological genetic science by storm. Johnson is co-founder of the FOXG1 Research Foundation (https://www.foxg1research.org) and she gives her 6 & 1/2 year old child CBD oil to help with her seizures.
Johnson says that there can be a tremendous benefit to those who are not only suffering from FOXG1 but, seizures in general.
Nicole Zeitzer Johnson, co-founder of the FOXG1 Research Foundation is available for interviews.
Nicole desperately wants to save her daughter's life. In 2011, her daughter Josie was born with a devastating genetic condition called FOXG1 Syndrome. Nicole and her husband Rich are not carriers. It's called a "de novo" mutation when it begins with the child. And like most children with FOXG1 Syndrome, Josie is fed with a feeding tube and suffers from epilepsy.
FOXG1 is one of the first and most critical genes in brain development. It was originally called Brain Factor One as it provides blueprints for a protein that helps other genes switch on or off. Scientists believe that FOXG1 holds the key to unlocking many brain disorders such as Autism, Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, Brain Cancer and more.
