Miguel Cervantes, who plays Alexander Hamilton in Chicago’s HAMILTON, released a new original song ‘Til the Calm Comes about his family, wife Kelly and their personal journey with their baby daughter Adelaide’s struggle with epilepsy.
Adelaide is the beautiful one-year-old daughter of Kelly and Miguel Cervantes and beloved little sister to Jackson. She is also a member of the CURE family. Miguel is partnering with Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE) to raise funds to support epilepsy research in honor of his 1-year-old daughter who is suffering from epilepsy.
Adelaide suffers from Infantile Spasms (IS), a rare childhood epilepsy syndrome that can have profoundly negative long-term consequences. Starting at 7 months, Adelaide began having dozens of seizures per day and as a result has severe developmental and cognitive delays. The current available treatments for IS are not always effective and are often associated with substantial adverse effects.
