I am running in the Marine Corps 10K, with Athletes vs Epilepsy, raising funds to make a difference in the lives of the 65 million people living with epilepsy.
I had my first seizure at 18 months old. 32 years later, Epilepsy continues to be the antagonist in my life story. Although omnipresent, it tends to linger under the surface, opting to rear its ugly head at the most inconvenient times. Epilepsy is a theif that steals time, memory, and moments. It lingers like an uninvited guest, and leaves you fearing the moment when it will take over.
Over the years I have learned to embrace this illness that gives me perspective and an appreciation for life. I'm grateful for the way this illness has challenged me to keep everything in perspective, and for the way it reminds me how precious and fragile life is.
Please support me and the millions of people living with Epilepsy 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 people who are living with epilepsy and seizures.
