As most of you know, I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was four years old. Since then, I have battled on and off with absence seizures and the consequences that come along with them. I'm extremely blessed because, despite the difficulties I've had to overcome, I've still been able to do what I love. Friends, family, soccer, and theater have been a huge part of my childhood and being a part of these things is something I will never take for granted. Lately, I've had this calling to help others who haven't been as fortunate as me...who are unable to participate in the arts or play sports because their medication isn't as effective or they're unable to find a cure. Something was put on my heart to give to the ones who can't kick a soccer ball, or shop with their friends, or bake cookies with their family, or recite lines for a theatrical production. I am raising money to change 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. Just think what $5,000 could do to help the men, women, boys, and girls with epilepsy! My hope and prayer is that we will not just reach $5,000, but that we will exceed this goal and bless the lives of numerous people and their families who fight an epileptic battle 365 days a year. Thank you so much for donating to Emma's Epilepsy Warriors and please tell your friends and family to also join me in giving epilepsy patients a chance at a normal life.
