THE STORY:

Dear friends and family,

On behalf of a cure for epilepsy and in honor of my son, Luke , I am running the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington DC on Sunday, October 26th. Team Luke is hoping to raise $1,900.00 this year based on the age Luke was diagnosed (19, five years ago.) There have been ER visits this year as in the past but I am even more confident there will be a way to cure or manage Luke's type of seizures in the near future. 

I appreciate all of the emails, notes, and conversations with you my friends and family. You have no idea the comfort and grounding it brings to me as a mom.

This past year you may have notice A LOT more social media and even advertising on prime time tv about Epilepsy. Yay!

FYI Epilepsy Foundation has written:

The Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to making sure that people with epilepsy and seizures can experience all that life has to offer. Athletes vs. Epilepsy™ affirms this positive message and embodies it through action.

Athletes vs. Epilepsy is a nationwide program for athletes, coaches, volunteers and fans to raise awareness and money to help fund the Epilepsy Foundation's mission.

For our Athletes vs. Epilepsy, it’s about more than just the race, game, meet, etc. Each of our athletes also raise money and awareness on behalf of Epilepsy Foundation and our fight to stop seizures and SUDEP, find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy through efforts including education, advocacy and research to accelerate ideas into therapies.
