In November 2014, I felt like my whole entire world came crashing down around me when I received my diagnosis. At that time, my sweet baby was only 11 months old and I had to spend several nights away from him while in the hospital, which was very hard for me. 

Since then, I have had a few seizures while sleeping, but not any tonic-clonics (formerly known as Grand Mals), since I am taking medication twice daily. It has been a journey for my family and myself to adjust to this new diagnosis, but I am so thankful to have such a great support! 

Please help my team reach our goal and raise money for this cause so near and dear to my heart!
