Thank you for taking part in the EF Walk and becoming a team member!
Why I walk:
My journey with Epilepsy began when my daughter April was diagnosed with Epilepsy at about the age of 10. April had complex partial seizures and later also had tonic clonic seizures. Her seiuzures were never fully controlled. She was part of the 70% of those with no known cause for her Epilepsy. She was honest and open about her seizures and continued to perservere to do the things she loved in life.
April enjoyed playing softball, being with her family, animals, children, watching movies and working at a movie theater. 12 years ago at the age of 20 April died after having a seizure in her sleep. We continued to walk for Epilespy in the annual Duluth walk, under the team she named Roaring Thunder, for many years, as the foundation provided April and our family wiht support during her jouney.
We join again this year, with "Team Remembering April", to continue our support for others affectd by Epilepsy and remember the joy April brought to our lives.
Thank you for your support of the MN Epilepsy Foundation and for Remembering April
