Mission

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a Colorado non-profit corporation formed by Julie and Doug Hutchison to provide help to individuals, particularly children and young adults, who have epilepsy. The main focus is to raise funds to provide grants for trained seizure-response dogs Emfit movement monitors. Seizure response dogs can help detect when someone may be having a seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after a seizure by calling 911, getting help or breaking a fall. The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is named for Julie and Doug's beloved daughter, Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure in April of 2009. SUDEP (Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy) was the cause of her death. During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told the Hutchisons a seizure could take her life, other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided.

Programs

We have two large yearly events. One is a dinner and silent auction and the other is a SUDEP Awareness Walk. Throughout the year, we work with local businesses to constantly fundraise so we can meet our grants as they come due. Julie Hutchison oversees and organizes all events as this is her passion. To date, we have provided 24 grants for seizure-response dogs and have provided 18 Emfit movement monitors. We have a great following and wonderful supporters.
