THE STORY:

Hi everyone!

As many of you know, I will be running the 2015 NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 1st.  I have now run three half-marathons and always wanted to do a full marathon, so I decided that no better time than the present! I am running this race for charity and will be supporting FACES, Finding A Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures. This campaign is particularly important to me, as I have suffered from epilepsy since I was in seventh grade. FACES is also affiliated with the NYU Langone Medical Center, where I have been a patient for years under the care of Dr. Jacqueline French, MD.

I have always been very candid in terms of my epilepsy, so here is how it began....The morning I woke up for my 7th grade ski trip I thought it would be a normal day. Instead of a great weekend in Vermont with my friends, I began a lifelong journey against epilepsy. I went to put in my contacts and the next thing I remember is being in an ambulance and my mom explaining that I had a seizure. What was a seizure? How did that happen? Why did it happen to me? Many of these questions could never be answered. The next few hours, days, months and years changed my life. I have been able to lead a fulfilling, healthy life, but not without medication changes and side effects, dosing errors and uncertainty. There have definitely been challenges, but it has made me a much stronger person as a result. 

By being an epilepsy advocate I hope to improve the lives of people that have epilepsy. Every dollar donated goes towards research to improve epilepsy care, advance new therapies and foster a supportive community for children, families and caregivers who live with the challenges of epilepsy. 

Please help by making a donation today! FACES is a fantastic charity to be involved with and I am honored to run with them. Every little bit counts and I will see you at the finish line after 26.2 miles!

Thank you for your support and motivation!

Lizzy
