Team Captain matteo 12th Annual National Walk for Epilepsy

WELCOME TO Team #MATTEO fundraising page

Those of you who know me know that my kids are the most important part of my life, there is nothing I would not do for them.   My 8 year old son, Matteo was diagnosed with Epilepsy last year.  In the past year we have faced moments of fear, sadness, joy, compassion and learning.   While his condition is frightening at times,  we are acutely aware that Matteo's prognosis is an absolute blessing.  There are far too many kids in dire situations and families who are forced to face the unimaginable.  To say we have gratitude for the hand we have been dealt, is a complete understatement.   

Nevertheless there is still a lot of work to be done.  We are raising funds to make a difference in the lives of people living with epilepsy. The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives. 

Please support this cause by making a safe and secure donation to my fundraising webpage. Giving to the Epilepsy Foundation means you make the world a better, easier, more manageable place for the  3 million people in the U.S. who are living with epilepsy and seizures. 

Thank you for your help and support, remember that every bit helps.  If you cannot donate, please spread the word and share this link.
