July 5th,2015 will mark 10 years since my first seizure. The day started with a 9 mile run. Unfortunately, the run was followed by two Grand Mal seizures, my first ambulance ride, and a diagnosis of a brain tumor. The next few years were filled with tests, surgeries, and experimenting with new medications. It was quite a roller coaster ride for my whole family. Epilepsy didn't just end my career as an airline pilot, it forced me into a life I was not prepared for. From the beginning, the Epilepsy Foundation had proven to be an valuable resource. They work to educate people about Epilepsy, help them adjust to their new lives, and provide continued support when needed. The foundation has helped my family so much that we have worked these past few years to find ways to give back. Through the Athlete's Vs. Epilepsy program, I not only have the chance to spread awareness, but to raise money for a non-profit organization that is sadly underfunded.
