Our son Michael was diagnosed 3 years ago with Complex Partial Seizure; also known as Focal Seizures. These types of seizures affect the right side of his brain and lead to staring spell type symptoms. When experiencing complex partial seizures he is not aware of his surroundings, and may move or speak, but will be confused and unaware of what is actually going on. Although we have had several over the past 3 year, luckily he has been home or at school.
We would love for you to join Michael's team or make a donation for this cause. It truly will help so many since over a lifetime, 1 in 10 people will have a seizure and 1 in 26 will be diagnosis with epilepsy. Epilepsy Foundation of Iowa has helped educate Michael's teachers and staff thru the resources they provide.
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 our fundraising web-page. 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.
Thank you for your help and support.
