Epilepsy causes seizures and other health problems. It is a chronic brain disorder that comes with a risk of death either from seizure complications or sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP).
Many people with this condition can live a long, and productive life. It is one of the most common brain conditions, with about 3.4 million people in the United States having the disease in “active” form, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Remembering the late actor on his second birth anniversary, Boyce’s father Victor Boyce took to Instagram to share a childhood photo of his late son. He wrote, “This is the way I will always remember him. So happy, so full of love for his family and friends. I miss him more than words can describe and I dream about him often.”
