I'm raising money for this event: Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
 My Message
Hi Everyone!

I am at it again! I am thrilled to say that I am running in the 2016 Chicago Marathon to raise money for the Danny Did Foundation. The foundation raises money to prevent deaths caused by seizures. It is named after Danny Stanton, a sweet four year old boy who passed away after suffering a seizure in his sleep caused by Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). You can read more about Danny at www.dannydid.org/danny-does/ to view the level of awareness that is being raised by Danny Did. I will also be running for my sweet daughter Annie. Annie is my 15 year old daughter who was diagnosed with Epilepsy 8 years ago. I am happy to say that Annie has been doing great and is enjoying life as a normal 15 year old girl.

As a mother of a child who suffers from seizures you constantly worry. In the midst of teen years, I have now taken on new worries such as Annie is driving and adventuring off with friends. These are the days I can no longer watch over her as closely. Annie was thrilled to hear that her mother would yet again be running the 2016 Chicago Marathon with Team Danny Did. My goal is to raise 1,000 dollars and every contributor will be remembered and I will hold them each in my heart. Please help me reach me goal!!! Every mile I run, I will be thinking of two precious children... Danny and my Annie. Once again, this one is for you! To be a part of Danny Did, is quite an honor. I look forward to another amazing experience that I will never forget. Again, Thank you for your support!

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 affects nearly 3 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. The name of the Danny Did Foundation originates from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.”

Our 2015 Team raised over $60k last year and those funds were used to help place seizure detection devices in homes across the country. These devices alarm a caregiver during a seizure which can reduce the safety risks often associated with seizures. Parents appreciate this peace of mind and are thankful for the chance to address a seizure and keep their loved ones safe. We plan to beat that team fundraising number in 2016, and we hope you will be part of reaching this goal. Thank you for your support! To learn more, please visit www.dannydid.org.
