BENEFITING: NYU Langone Medical Center
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
Irving was diagnosed at 5 1/2 months with Infantile Spasms, a devastating form of epilepsy. After a 6 month treatment, his seizures stopped. We thought we had 'beat' the disease. Two and a half years later his seizures returned and our temporary victory turned into a 3 1/2 year battle, culminating in brain surgery last year. Irving is still fighting to become seizure free.
Running this race, I hope to raise awareness about epilepsy and funds for an orgazination that has not only guided and supported our family through these difficult years, but also works towards finding a cure.
