My Name Is Jeremy Taylor I’m 8 yrs old and I was diagnosed with Epilepsy in the Summer of 2011.
Since my diagnosis, I have had multiple seizures while sleeping and playing. I’ve also had several absence seizures (Brief loss of consciousness) while in school. I am currently on 2 anti-seizure meds twice a day.
This coming Sept of 2016, I will be 1yr seizure free!!!!!!!
My Family and friends will be walking for a cure .
Please help us reach our goal and fight Epilepsy.
