I know I've said it before, but it'd be great if we could end epilepsy, stop seizures from happening, change lives, etc. by snapping our fingers or praying or wishing or wiggling our noses. In lieu of that, we can walk and support those who are working toward that end and those that are living well with epilepsy and those that are living the hell that is epilepsy.
Please consider donating to Team Sophalofa. Here's a copy of our page on the walk website. Below it is the link for your donation. And if you feel like it, please just come out and walk with us at the Rose Bowl! We'd love you to join our team!
Welcome to our team page for the Walk to End Epilepsy! The epilepsies are the world’s most common, serious brain disorders worldwide with no age, racial, social class, national or geographic boundaries. Seizures steal moments and memories, can change lives, impact development, affect learning and can even result in death. There are no cures.
As most of you know, our Sophie has had epilepsy since she was three months old. We walk every year at the End Epilepsy Walk to help raise awareness about epilepsy, to advocate for research and treatment and most of all to support our fellow companions on this often arduous journey. We are fortunate to have finally found relief for Sophie from constant seizures through cannabis and are passionate in our support of medical marijuana. We believe that every family should have the option to explore this treatment, particularly with refractory seizures and are happy to answer any questions about it. We are so grateful for all the hard work of the EFGLA, for Sophie's supportive neurologist, and for our family and friends. We hope you'll come and walk with us and/or support our team with a donation. See you soon!
For the reasons above and many more, we have banded together to participate in the Walk to End Epilepsy on Sunday, November 22, 2015 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena to END EPILEPSY.
Please support our efforts by making a donation to the team or a member of the team. Your involvement provides care, advocacy and education today while investing in research and hope for tomorrow. Your contribution makes a difference. Thank you!
