BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2015
Three and a half years ago our lives changed forever when our little warrior, Gavin, was born. We never thought our lives would change again so drastically seventeen months later when Gavin suffered from his first seizure. It has now been two years of several trials of medications, doctors, bloodwork, emergency room visits, hospital stays, EEGs, and administering of rescue meds so that Gavin would come out of his seizures. No parent should have to see their child suffer. The vision is impossible to shake. Our little man has proven that he is a fighter and that he is not a force to be reckoned with. It has been a difficult journey but we are always ready to continue the fight against Epilepsy. Gavin's last 48 hour EEG still came back with some abnormal activity so we continue to have strengh, faith, and determination each day. We have promised that Epilepsy will not have control over our little man; WE will have control over Epilepsy by never giving up. We are walking to bring awareness to Epilepsy and allow others to gain the knowledge they need to understand this condition.
