A Father's Journey Supporting his wife living with Epilepsy

The Quarterback DadCast

30-11-2023 • 1 hr 20 mins

Today's episode is one that I hope helps another dad who is either dealing with epilepsy or supporting a spouse with epilepsy.

We get to speak with Nick Brown of Fenway Search in this heartfelt and vulnerable conversation.  Nick and I met during my time at Kforce, and now Nick is a partner at the fantastic Fenway Search, which provides premier finance and accounting recruiting services.  Nick is married to his wonderful wife, Allison, and the father of his two fantastic children.

Growing up in an Italian-American family in Boston, Nick would share how important family was to him.  Before diving into the challenges of epilepsy, we learn about Nick, the dad, and how his parents impacted him now that he is a father.    We learned that pasta was more than just a staple dish but a symbol of togetherness. We explore the profound impact of cultural immersion with Nick, and I share personal tales about our own experiences with cultural identity.

Nick is a man who loves his family and is extremely loyal to them.  His dedication, largely inspired by the roles his own parents played in his life, is something Nick hopes to pass down to his own children.

Navigating the challenges of parenting is never easy, and those challenges can be magnified when living with a chronic illness.  Nick and I share our experiences with epilepsy, shedding some light on the struggles faced by those grappling with this condition.   You will hear the day he found out his wife would face the challenges of epilepsy.

As the episode wraps, you will hear why being present and hands-on are two things Nick always focuses on as a dad.  We wrap up our engaging conversation with a keen look at the power of vulnerability and humility as we delve into its impact on Nick's experience.

Join us on this journey as we embrace the complexities and joys of fatherhood, cultural heritage, personal growth, epilepsy, and more!

A huge shoutout goes to the support that the New England Epilepsy Foundation as provided Nick and his family.
