Brawlers - I am pumped to see you all at this year's Fall Brawl! It's going to be EPIC. There will be plenty of paddle play, competition, laughter, smack talk, and prizes to go around.

From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to sincerely thank you all for participating and helping raise awareness of Dravet Syndrome and the Dravet Syndrome Foundation. I am so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful, strong, tight-knit community. Our family is incredible touched by your love and support for our little Anna banana and all the children facing this challenge. Together, we will find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure!




DSF is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by a group of parents who wanted to expedite research to find a cure
and better treatments for their own afflicted children.

Proceeds benefit the Dravet Syndrome Foundation whose mission is to raise money for research into Dravet syndrome and related childhood epilepsies
while helping afflicted individuals and their families.
