I am raising funds for the 13th Annual 5K National Epilepsy Walk on Saturday, April 27, 2019. This will be the last year for a national Epilepsy Walk - so I really want it to be the most successful year ever for Team Breen-O!
I have lived with epilepsy for nearly 19 years. It has been a long, hard journey and some days are a real struggle. All days are challenging and unpredictable with many limitations on my life. Not being able to drive has been a particularly disappointing loss.
Fortunately, I live nearby Johns Hopkins Hospital where I can receive the best medical care. In 2013, I underwent major brain surgery after extensive mapping and advanced data collection of all areas of my brain. The surgery did not produce the much hoped-for results, as it has for so many. It resulted in a partial loss of vision and loss of reading comprehension which has made things tougher. I will continue to be open to the best current medical opportunities, if only to help others have an easier path. There are no guarantees in life.
I am determined to make the best of each day!
Please help make a difference in the lives of people living with epilepsy. We want to find a way to stop seizures 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 3.5 million people in the U.S. who are living with epilepsy and seizures.
