BENEFITING: DANNY DID FOUNDATION

EVENT: Art Van Charity Challenge

EVENT DATE: May 18, 2015

THE STORY:

“Please Go and Enjoy Your Life . . . Danny Did.” Those were the last words of Chicagoan Danny Stanton’s obituary after he died from a seizure while he was sleeping. He was just three months shy of his fifth birthday. Danny had epilepsy, and before his death his family did not know that he could die from Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP).

To carry on Danny’s place in the world, the Danny Did Foundation (DDF) works towards its mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures. Every $1,000 raised for Danny Did in the 2015 Art Van Charity Challenge will fund seizure monitors for 2 families in need! The DDF has advanced public awareness of epilepsy and of SUDEP, has enhanced communication between doctors and families about the risk of SUDEP, and has contributed to the acceptance and use of seizure-detection devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths.

These devices, which monitor for seizure activity and trigger an alarm to alert a family member or caregiver that activity is occurring, enable early intervention for the person seizing, and provide parents peace of mind that seizure activity will not go undetected. The DDF has funded monitoring devices for families spanning 48 states and seven countries. Through this program, Danny continues to help others, just as this loving boy would do if he were alive today.

One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime, and epilepsy affects 65 million people worldwide. By reaching our goal of raising $50,000, we can provide at least 100 new families with a monitoring device. We invite you read about the impact of your support at www.dannydid.org and to follow us at www.facebook.com/DannyDid and www.twitter.com/dannydidorg. Please donate today to protect people who face seizures!
