I'm raising money for this event: Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
 My Message
Over the past 15 years I have participated in many races and events that promote awareness and action for a greater cause. Having the motivation and support of someone or racing for a cure, is a force that is stronger than any coach.

In September 2015, my son, Raymond had his first seizure, and after months of testing, doctor visits and admittance's, was diagnosed with Epilepsy. He is on medication that is helping treat and limit these seizures. We are confident that he is in good hands with a great team of doctors at the University of Chicago, Comers Children's Hospital.

Since September, there has not been a moment where worry for Raymond has escaped my mind. Every night I rock him to sleep and pray that he won’t wake up crying from a seizure episode. Every doctor appointment, I pray that the activity has stopped and he can come off his meds, every time he is climbing on top of the jungle gym at the park, I struggle to hold myself back and pray that he won’t seize and fall off, injuring himself further. I want to give him space to grow; to learn how to accomplish things on his own, but my fear of him seizing, and not being right there to catch him, terrifies me and takes over.

I know there are unfortunately millions of families touched by Epilepsy. The constant worry and unknown with this disease is a real fear that so many live with. I have decided to run the 2016 Chicago Marathon for all of these families and individuals who share this fear. I have teamed up with The Danny Did Foundation and hope to help in advancing awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy, (SUDEP).

The Danny Did Foundation has been a resource for our family and so many others in our situation. They created a foundation in memory of their 4 year old son, Danny who passed away due to SUED. Their goal is to help advance public awareness of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families afflicted by seizures, and the mainstreaming of seizure detection and prediction devices that can assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. These devices are complimentary to medicinal, surgical and dietary measures that are used to treat seizures.

If you have the means to help this cause, please join me in my effort. Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you with all my heart!

Love, Caley (Byrne) Doran

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.
