Hi guys and gals!
Thanks for visiting the page!!
I'm running the Austin Half Marathon in February and have decided to run it for the Epilepsy Foundation! As you all probably know, my dad has had epilepsy since he was in high school. He had brain surgery when John and I were in elementary school and has been on various medications ever since to try to help control the seizures. There's no cure for epilepsy, nor is there a root cause, but the Epilepsy Foundation directs resources to research and support in the hopes of one day being able to better treat and control it and maybe one day even prevent or cure it.
Dad's been blessed with two pretty stellar children, an amazing wife and generous, loving friends and family, but there are many out there who don't have that support. I know we all have our causes that we donate to, but if you could spare even just $10 or $20, it would mean a lot.
Thanks in advance!
