As most of, if not all of, you guys know Epilepsy is a condition that is near to my heart. As a parent to a child that is battling Epilepsy, I have noticed first hand the impact this condition can have on children with Epilepsy and the families that care for them, not to mention how scary seizures can be for everyone involved. Witnessing the tests and doctors visits the child has to go through (which include long car rides and hotel expenses, because only certain places are capable of giving the proper care). Seeing the medicine the child is prescribed giving them mood swings that they do not understand, but get in trouble anyway for "acting out". To the feeling the parents have when they notice their child being turned away from certain daycares or activities because people don't know much about epilepsy and are too scared to bring on an epileptic child.
That being said, I am 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.
