BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011
If you are reading this you already know that my sister and other members of my extended family have been afflicted with seizure disorders. Seizure disorders like epilepsy are a medical mystery in many ways. In my sister's lifetime it seems to me that little progress has been made to improve quality of life for those who suffer from these disorders. Suffering from epilepsy is life altering and can be pretty dramatic. Imagine not having a driver's license, not knowing when you'll just drop to the ground in the middle of a grocery store... You get the idea.
So, I am going to dedicate my LA Marathon run this year to the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles to do some little thing to help solve the mystery of seizure disorders. It would mean a lot to me if you can help in any way.
