I'm raising money for this event: Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
 My Message
Please help me support the Danny Did Foundation in its mission of advancing awareness of epilepsy and sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP). I will be running the Chicago Marathon on October 9, 2016. While in town, I will be visiting my aunt Carrie, my fellow curly-haired "brown eyed girl" who has been confused for my mom and my sister (much to her satisfaction). My aunt Carrie is an amazing individual who works as a social worker and helps people from all walks of life. She also has epilepsy and had to have brain surgery in college. There is so much we have yet to learn about epilepsy, and as a nurse and a family member, I hope that we can make sure that no more individuals like Danny, the namesake of the Danny Did Foundation, die from epilepsy and no more individuals like my aunt have to live life affected by it. Thank you for considering contributing to this wonderful cause!

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.
