To all the wonderful people …
To all the wonderful people who are supporting my Athletes vs. Epilepsy Fundraiser,

On the eve of my race I wanted to send a quick note thanking each and every one of your for your support. 48 different families/individuals have taken the time to make a contribution, and together you have raised $2195 for the Epilepsy Foundation of America. I am so grateful to each of you.

It has been so fitting that I spent much of the past week with Annika in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at CHOP in an effort to better understand her seizures and to guide her future treatment. It was a very successful admission - which means that she had multiple seizures and they were able to capture them on EEG and see where they are originating in her brain. It was important to do this, but each seizure takes a little more out of her, and breaks my heart a little bit more.

It is impossible to say right now what Annika's long-term prognosis is. There are some hopeful signs and some discouraging ones, and we just need to keep going down the path we are on. But what I can say for certain is that this year another 150,000 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy in the United States, and millions more around the world. And epilepsy research is still massively underfunded, and the condition itself is still woefully misunderstood.

With your contribution, each of you have begun to make a difference with this. Thank you!

I am excited for my race and will let you know how it goes tomorrow!

With love to each of you,
