THE STORY:

Many of you know that my mother has lived with epilepsy for most of her life.  Thankfully, her seizures are controlled with the use of medication and this has allowed her to live a fulfilling life that includes a career and being an active and loving mother and grandmother.  It is through research and support of foundations such as the EFMNY that my mother, Martha is able to live the productive life she does.
    I have also seen how devastating this condition can be through my dear friends' son Tommy, who suffered from severe seizures and other neurological complications.  On January 31, 2014 Tommy tragically passed away before his second birthday.  His life, while short, had a profound impact on everyone who knew him.  Tommy was an unbelievable fighter and is lovingly remembered as Superman.  Tommy had superhero strength in every battle he fought.
    I am proud to be running the NYC Half Marathon in honor of my incredibly strong mother, Martha Nemeth and in memory of Thomas 'Superman' Vasile III.  They are both superheroes to me.

Please support me in reaching my goal of raising a minimum of $2,000 in order to increase epilepsy awareness and to help people affected by this disorder.  All donations go directly to the Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York, which provides counseling, therapy, employment services, support groups and educational resources to those affected by epilepsy and their families.

 

The EFMNY is an Official Charity Partner of the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half! Proudly serving our community since 1967, we are the NYC area’s only organization specializing in both raising public awareness about epilepsy and providing personalized services and supports to those affected by seizures. We educate the public about the need to accelerate research, so that better treatments are available and a cure is reached. We reassure individuals living with epilepsy that they are not alone and help caregivers learn more about supports, programs and therapies. For more information please visit WWW.EFMNY.ORG
