My name is Mark Pattison and I am a former NFL Player now climbing the Seven Summits.  I am off to Mt Everest next April 2020 and hoping to become the 1st NFL Player to ever do so.  

While playing in the NFL & climbing mountains has been an amazing journey, my daughter Emilia has been dealing with epilepsy since she was 6 years old.  She is now 20 years old and a junior at the University of Arizona and her journey has been 10 times harder than anything I have ever done.   

Together, our goal is to raise money and awareness to eliminate all seizures for the thousands who have to deal with this each day.  Think about if you couldn't drive, play on the monkey bars, ride a bike or it challenged the way you learn in life or school.  That is what life has been like for Emilia.     

As a member of Athletes vs Epilepsy, join Emilia and myself to help raise funds to help find cures and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy.

Your donation will help fund innovation in accelerating new treatments and therapies in a time frame that matters. No donations is too big or too small, every dollar counts to the people living with epilepsy.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Athletes vs Epilepsy and help ensure that people with seizures have the opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential!

Thank you, Mark & Emilia...

Dad with daughters Claudette & Emilia
