For Anna - Dravet Foundation - 2018 Chicago & NYC marathons

Kim And Andrew Odlaug

Kim and Andrew Odlaug

Thank you so much for visiting. Andrew is running the 2018 Chicago (10/7) and NYC (11/4) marathons in support of the Dravet Syndrome Foundation and in honor of our sweet baby girl Anna, who we joyfully welcomed into this world in late September 2017. Words can't adequately express the love that we have for this wonderful child.

After suffering prolonged seizures following her 4 and 6 month vaccinations, Anna was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome in early May. While shocked and saddened by the news, we are intent to remain optimistic and focus on the reasons for hope, of which there are many. Andrew is running this year for Anna and all of the brave Dravet children who have come before her. It is in large part because of these children that there is more hope than ever before, for what has historically been a devastating and intractable condition. Due to the advances that have been made in research and treatment over the past several years, we believe that the natural history of this disease is being rewritten.

The mission of DSF is to aggressively raise research funds for Dravet syndrome and related epilepsies; to increase awareness of these catastrophic conditions; and to provide support to affected individuals and families. These fundraising efforts will help with this paramount cause.

Our sincere thanks for anything you can contribute, whether financial or any positive energy you can send our way.

With love and gratitude,
Kim, Anna and Andrew
