Remembering Chelsea's Good Work!

We start this New Year with such gratitude, as we have had the amazing opportunity to grant Comfort and Hope to more and more individuals living with Epilepsy.  Movement monitors alert caretakers nearby that their loved one is having a seizure.  For some of the monitors, they alert contacts chosen via a cell phone, allowing the person freedom and independence.  They alert to seizures while sleeping, allowing someone to check on them and ensure they are safe.  All of the monitors we provide have the potential to save a person's life.  The risk of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) is a huge worry and reality for both the person living with Epilepsy, as well as those who love them and/or care for them.  We believe, and have born witness to many stories supporting such, that thse monitors are a line of defense against it.  None of these monitors are covered by insurance.  

With your help, we have been able to grant almost 1200 of these devices to the Epilepsy community.  We hear time and again from these recipients that they feel some peace and relief knowing they have their monitor.  Parents reaching out and telling us story after story of being able to be with their child while seizing, only because of the alerts they received.  We pride ourselves on being up to date on the latest information regarding any of these devices, and then being able to put the devices into the hands of our community.  Every dollar you contribute to this project goes directly to these monitors.  We are so grateful for your support!
