Chelsea Hutchison Foundation update

Thank you, again, for supporting The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation.  When you support us, you make a big difference in the lives of those struggling with seizures and epilepsy.  We are a very grass-roots, volunteer-based Foundation that is committed to getting relief right into the hands of those who need it.  We aren't bit, but we are mighty and determined to minimizing (or eliminating) the number of seizure-related deaths that occur each year in the US.

Epilepsy affects over 3 million Americans of all ages - more than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson's disease - combined.  Almost 500 new cases of epilepsy are diagnosed every day and it is estimated that up to 50,000 Americans die from seizures and seizure-related causes every year in the United States.

To date, Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has provided 49 grants for seizure-response dogs and 120 movement monitors.  We receive 3-5 requests each week for help so your continued support is so appreciated.

The 4th Annual Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness will take place on September 22, 2013.  What started as a small walk in Littleton, Colorado has grown to include 6 separate locations across the United States.  Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and (2) locations in Virginia.  In addition, for those who are not able to walk with us at one of our physical walks, we will offer opportunities to be a virtual walker or create a virtual team.  MARK YOUR CALENDAR!

Chelsea Hutchison Foundation Project Update

Thank you for your continuing support of the Chelsea Hutchision Foundation.   Through your support, and others like you, we have been able to provide 43 grants for seizure-response dogs and have provided 89 Emfit movement monitors and 11 SmartWatches for those dealing with the everyday affects of seizures. 

Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has some exciting events planned this year.  Mark your calendar....Chelsea's Caribbean Beach Party will take place in Denver, CO on April 26th.  You might consider planning your summer vacation and supporting the Foundation  by booking Chelsea's Cruise to the Yucatan June 17-22nd.  This is not a conference, just an opportunity to vacation aboard Carnival's Triumph with a portion of the rooms booked being donated back to Chelsea Hutchison Foundation by Carnival Cruise Line.  Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness 2013 will take place in up to 8 states on September 22nd. 

Thank you again for your support as your generosity is instrumental in allowing Chelsea Hutchison Foundation to continue making a difference in the lives of children and adults living with Epilepsy.

Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness

Thank you to those of you who continue supporting  the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation (CHF) in our quest to help those living with the daily struggles of epilepsy.  This year, CHF has provided 13 grants for seizure-response dogs and have placed 50 Emfit monitors in the hands of families who could otherwise not afford them.  

Chelsea's Gala was a wonderful event in May, 2012.  Connor Doran, of America's Got Talent wowed the crowd with his indoor-kit flying performance.  

The 3rd Annual Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness takes place on September 23rd at Clement Park in Littleton, CO.  This walk has grown and we are excited to announce that Chelsea's Walk will also take place in Winchester, VA - Eldon, MO - and Wichita, KS.  There will also be a group gathering at Hotel W in Hollywood to walk on the 23rd.  If you are interested in registering for any of the walks, please visit ChelseasWalk.org.  We will also have people walking virtually across this US.   If you can't walk, but would like to show your support, you can register as a virtual walker and receive this year's walk tshirt with our trademarked shoeprint - Live so that when you are gone, it will have mattered!

Enjoy your Fall and I look forward to updating you again in a few months!
