Misty Phillips

THE STORY:

Our son experienced his first seizure in December of 2009.  

Since that time, we have learned a great deal about Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder.  For as much as we know about, there is far more we do not know about this mysterious condition.  In our case it "just came out of nowhere".

According to The Epilepsy Foundation 1 in 26 people in the United States will develop Epilepsy in their lifetime.  It is believed that over 2 million people are currently living with Epilepsy in the United States today.

Our personal journey with our son and Epilepsy has had its' ups and downs.  We have been frustrated, angry  and often concerened about what the future holds for our child. We have also been supported, encouraged and accepted into a wonderful community.

Because of the Epilepsy Foundation and Epilepsy Therapy Project, our son went to summer camp and learned important life strategies (while getting to have a whole lot of fun!).  He also participated in "The Hidden Truths, The Mind Unraveled Art Show" in L.A. in October 2013 where two pieces of his orginal artwork were displayed (he was one of just ten student artists in the world represented).  

As his mom, I am very proud of his positive attitude and compassion for others.

With the encouragement of my family, I have decided to run the 2014 Marine Corps Marathon with the Epilepsy Foundation.  My fundraising goal is $1200.  

Please consider donating to this deserving charity who gives so much.
