My name is Shakima K. Lauray. The reason I am participating in the Annual Epilepsy Walk is because I would like to motivate, uplift and inspire people such as myself living with epilepsy. My having this illness has made me realize that I have Epilepsy but epilepsy does not have me! With all the different medications for Epilepsy it really is a challenge and really hard to deal with at times. With all the love and support from family , friends, doctors and other educators I firmly believe we will find out not only the source but the cure for epilepsy as well. Always remember, Never give up, fight epilepsy.
