Hope all is well with everyone. I am now seizure free for 8 years after the corrective surgery, and trying to get my drivers license. I am also trying to become a volunteer with my local chapter for Epileptic Foundation Northwest. I hope to be able to support others that have seizure activity still and start a support group in the Bend Redmond area in Oregon.

Hope everyone is doing well in here today. So far I have not had a seizure in awhile, and I am hoping to keep it that way. Though I am going to speak to my doctor about a service dog.

I would be happy to try to volunteer some time to helping the cause.  I currently have seizures myself and they can't seem to quite figure out what's "causing the storm" in my head.  So if I can help some other people out, great!  I was volunteering at the hospital and going to college but had to stop because of the toll my seizures were taking on me.  It's also hard being a mom too!    Just let me know where I can help out.

My name is Tonia. I have an 18 year old son who was diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 6. We have been through nearly every medication possible. My son has a VNS and has been through many hours of vigourous tests and such due to the hard time we've had in controlling his seizures.

I LOVE doing research about various things. I enjoy being able to talk with others who deal with seizures. I would love to see or actually start an epilepsy "club" in my small town but have no idea where I would even start.

I am my son's advocate in his school meetings and his job. I know from personal experience the wear and tear this horrid illness can have on a parent and I know the heartfelt hurt it brings when a parent has to sit back and see their child have a seizure and know there's really nothing we can do to help.

My desire is to be an advocate for any person and to help as many people as I can. I adore my son for his strength and his stubbornness which helps him avoid Epilepsy getting the best of him.

I'm always here for an encouraging word or a listening ear.

Tonia - Kentucky
