First, thank you to everyone that supported us for the Summer Stroll this year. I am not surprised at all that we have such kind and generous friends because of the love and concern you have shown us in this journey. But it was humbling and amazing to see our team total when we checked in. So, again, thank you!
The Summer Stroll was a mass of purple shirts, all people who have been affected by epilepsy. It was a bit surreal…the eventual realization that this is our community because we have been affected by epilepsy, too. And so have you. If you know us, then you know someone with epilepsy. If you don’t know us but are on this website, it’s likely because you know someone who has epilepsy, too.
On June 20, 2015 I’ll be helping the Epilepsy Foundation Eastern Pennsylvania continue to support and advocate for the people affected by epilepsy/seizure disorder at the annual Summer Stroll. The fundraising event is a five-mile, non-competitive walk that brings in over 1,500 individuals with epilepsy/seizure disorder and their supporters. In addition to raising awareness about the disorder, the event is integral in generating funds to support the Foundation’s free programs and services. Perhaps most importantly, the Summer Stroll is a testament to all those affected that they are not alone in their struggles.
This year, our family will be walking for my son, and we’re asking for donations to help support our team and this great cause.

Thank you in advance for your support, and be sure to come back after the event to see pictures!
Daisy Days is a month-long fundraising event uniting the entire Philadelphia community in support of one cause: The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Earlier this month, they hosted a Daisy Days fashion show at their main campus in Philadelphia.
Our son participated in the Daisy Days “Hope Blooms Here” fashion show after a very long day of seizures, behavior outbursts, and extreme exhaustion. But he refused to leave and wanted to get on the stage, which he did thanks to the kind nurses and volunteers that put on the show.
