Chelsea Hutchison Foundation Project Update

A few of our Seizure-Response Dog Grant Recipients

We just can't thank you enough for supporting The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation.  Because of you and others like you, we have just fulfilled (3) additional seizure-response dog grants, bringing our total to 48.  In addition, we were able to pay for (10) Emfit, (3) SmartWatch and (1) SAMiAlert monitors, brining our grant total of monitors provided to 119. We could not do this without your generous support!

"Just this past week, Connor did his first trip all on his own, by train. I can truly tell you that I never ever would have been able to let him do this without knowing he had that SmartWatch monitor. It was a huge independence move for him, and I am happy to say it all went well. The monitor is going to be something that changes all of our lives..." (Amy, Olymbia, WA)"

With Mother's Day, just around the corner, we would like to make you aware of Globalgiving's Mother's Day Tribute Card Program.  This is an opportunity for you to show tribute to the wonderful women in your lives, or pay respect to those who are no longer with us, by remembering them with a donation of any amount to our project.  GlobalGiving is providing an additional $5.00 for every tribute card purchased through May 12th.  In return a beautiful card of your choice will be sent to acknowledge your gift.  Click on this link if you would like to participate.   Thank you for your consideration!

Registration will start soon for the 4th Annual Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness. Organized walks will take place in Colorado, Virginia (2), Kansas, Missouri and Illinois. If you aren't near one of our organized walks and wish to participate, you will be able to register as a virtual walker and/or a virtual team and participate.  Watch for updates at or email us at
