BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT DATE: Sep 25, 2016
Gisela's Gems was created to honor the life of F. Gisela Soto. A loving mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend who's life ended way too soon.
For most of her life, Gisela suffered with epilepsy at a time when little was known about the disorder and little support was given. For many years Gisela and her family suffered in silence and in shame. Through this fundraiser, Gisela's family wants to take part in bringing forth awareness to the public, so that others do not have to suffer silently. We want to shed light to a neurological disorder that has kept so many hiding in the dark and let others know that they are not alone.
All proceeds collected will help fund epilepsy research and programs that can provide counseling and support to those who suffer from epilepsy and their loved ones.
On behalf of Gisela's family, I thank you for your time support.
