BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT DATE: Sep 21, 2014
Marisa's Mission is a dedication to the mission of finding a cure for Epilepsy and supporting Epilepsy awareness. Epilepsy does not define Marisa. Marisa defines Marisa. Together we can find a cure!
With something as scary and as uncontrollable as epilepsy, my sister is continousely succeeding. How one can "succeed" at having epilepsy you might ask? Well I am witnessing it everyday. While she may be rebellious and immensely stubborn at times, she has been winning at this. She has pushed herself, maybe sometimes outside her comfort zone, she has risen up from her lowest points and achieved everything she possibly could. Her extraordinary ability to turn on her tunnel-vision and only focus on her goals stuns me. I can never relate all of the emotions, fears and doubts she has faced within the last two years alone, nor will I ever try. Simply because those experiences can only be coupled with the traits exemplified by a true fighter, of which my sister, Marisa has shown nothing but. Every single day I see, watch, and take mental notes from her, on how to strive, adapt, push, grow and ultimately succeed doing so. That is my sister, Marisa Bella.
We are walking to support the cure for Epilepsy on Sunday September 21st @ The South Street Seaport beginning at 9:30AM. http://www.epilepsyintothelight.org/walk-overview/
