I'm raising money for this event:
Team Danny Did in the Chicago Marathon
I am running the Chicago Marathon as part of Team Danny Did on behalf of my niece, Meghan.
Since infancy, Meghan has lived with epilepsy but recently benefited from the Danny Did Foundation when she was provided with a life-saving Emfit Movement Monitor to prevent SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy).
On behalf of Meghan, I want to give back to this outstanding charity while raising additional funds so that other children can continue receiving benefits from its program.
About my cause:
Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation is dedicated to advancing public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families impacted by seizures, and gaining mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths
Epilepsy impacts nearly three million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy over their lifetime. Seizures can sometimes be fatal from a range of causes; more people die as a result of seizures than from fires and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) combined. Thousands of deaths occur annually from SUDEP, status epilepticus (prolonged seizures), and other seizure-related causes such as drowning and other accidents. Find more information at www.dannydid.org, www.facebook.com/DannyDid and www.twitter.com/dannydidorg. To date the foundation has provided financial support to families spanning 46 states and 6 countries. The name of the foundation originates from the last line of Danny’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.”
