Allie's Gators Returns

Saturday, April 20, 2013 will mark Allie's second National Walk for Epilepsy. 

The money raised from this walk helps the Epilepsy Foundation provide services for people living with epilepsy, provide awareness programs for proper seizure recognition and first aid, provide a voice to make sure health care options for people living with seizures remain strong, and provide much needed research funding toward better treatment options and ultimately cures.

1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy at some point in their lives and the time is NOW to help change this statistic. 

Allie was diagnosed with epilepsy in January 2012, when she was 11 months old. Thanks to modern medication and great doctors, Allie has been seizure free since February 2012. We know that not everyone is as fortunate as Allie in finding a way to effectively treat his/her epilepsy. We also know that Allie's seizures could return at any time. 

Together we can provide the support needed for people living with epilepsy. Please consider joining our team or making a donation to Allie's Gators by clicking here.
