My name is Natalie Skigen. I was diagnosed with Absence Seizures in May of 2008. The medication I took got them under control quickly. However, in 2013 I was diagnosed with Myoclonic Seizures. They are not quite under control, but they have gotten way better. My famiy and friends have helped me in so many ways. This will be my 9th time participating in the walk and I am very excited. We started out in 2009 with just 10 of us. Now we have over 30 people who join our team "Generations of Hope" and walk with us. It is such a great experience to be a part of a big event. The Epilepsy Foundation means a lot to me, and I want to help them in every way I can. Raising money for this walk with allow the foundation to have money to do further research to try and find a cure for the 65,000,000 other people in this world living with epilepsy.
Thank you SOOOO much for all that you do for me.
So how can you help? There are several ways!
