Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get! Together we can make a difference!

This month I am participating in a 5K to support Owen, an amazing little boy who is a member of our church and a very important member of our community. Dravet Syndrome is a rare, catastrophic, lifelong form of epilepsy that begins in the first year of life with frequent and/or prolonged seizures. It can cause behavioral and developmental delays, delayed language and speech issues, chronic infections, sensory integration disorders, and many other very challenging chronic conditions.

Current treatment options are very limited, and the constant care required for someone suffering from Dravet Syndrome can severely impact the patient’s and the family’s quality of life. We seek to raise awareness and fund much needed research for Dravet Syndrome. If you are compelled to donate, your contributions will truly be going to an incredibly important cause. Thank you so much for your support!

If you would like to learn more about Owen's story, his mom has created a very touching video. Please know that there is a very brief clip of Owen experiencing one of his seizures, which may be difficult to watch. https://video214.com/play/vJaRec3wwEYS3RXLyJQZpg/s/dark
