BENEFITING: REALM OF CARING FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 30, 2016
My daughter, Ngaire, suffers from intractable idiopathic epilepsy. At times in her life she's had many hundreds of seizures in a single day. I've run 4 marathons and raised almost $10,000 over the last 4 years for the Epilepsy Therapy Project/Epilepsy Foundation who do fantastic work in helping raise awareness of Epilepsy and sponsor treatment research.
This year I decided that I'd like to do my own fundraising and run for another cause I strongly believe in. I'm going to run the Marine Corp Marathon for The Realm of Caring in hopes of supporting them in their research into using cannabinoids in treating epilepsy. We haven't had to ever use this for Ngaire, but I'd like to know that we have the option if we have to. I also know several families who've had remarkable responses to treatment with cannabinoids. I think we desperately need to investigate these treatments further. If you'd like to help me please donate and thank you in advance.
Thank you so much for your support,
Brendan Grainger (Ngaire's Dad)
