Joel Wilcox: Hi my name is Joel Wilcox and I am from Columbus Ohio and I'm the newest Medikidz star. The first time I read Jack's comic, I thought it was awesome. I've had epilepsy since I was 7 years old. I was never able to understand it. Jack's comic explained it. Medikidz thought my experience with Flame would make a really cool comic book. Flame is my seizure alert dog. She's able to sense when I'm going to have a seizure. Flame is amazing. Before I have a seizure she can alert my parents or friends so they can sit me down somewhere safe. She's such a great dog. I knew she'd make such a wonderful co-star in the comic book. When I found out that I was going to be the next star in Medikidz, I was so excited and so was Flame. I told them Flame had to be featured with a cape, otherwise it was a deal breaker. If you want to be the next Medikidz star then I suggest you enter a video to tell your story. Check with your parents first to make sure it's OK. If you get selected, you can become the next star character and your very own comic book just like me and Flame. Come on Flame, let's get out of here.
