I am raising funds to make a difference in the lives of people living with epilepsy & because it is a lot of FUN.
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.
Here are a few statistics to help you realize the tremendous importance of our fundraising efforts and remind us why we walk.
