Thank you from Chelsea Hutchison Foundation

Thank you for your continued support of this project.  The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is so excited to announce that we have just purchased our 256th life-saving movement monitors for those in need.  This is possible, in part, because of your generous support.  We work hard everyday as we receive 15-20 requests a month for help.

Here are the three monitors that we have provided.

SAMiAlert Monitor

We gathered across the United States (6 locations) in September to STOMP Out Epilepsy and SUDEP.  Organized walks took place in Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Virginia.  In addition, we had many virtual walkers join us that weekend from all over - even had some walkers in Canada.  This was our 5th Annual STOMP (formerly called Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness).  

On November 6th, we were lucky enough to be able to send 10 families to Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland Resort 2014 because of one very special donor.  We took nominations and then randomly drew 5 single-parent families and 5 families who live with seizures and epilepsy.  This event was life-changing for these families and life-long friendships were made.  Community support is so important withe the isolation and misunderstandings that go along with this neurological disorder.  Chelsea Hutchison Foundation was asked to be a National Co-Host of this event and we were thrilled to be. Approximatley 1500 people gathered that day to raise awareness and show support.  

Thank you for your continued support!  When you donate to CHF, know that the funds we receive help families directly!

Respectfully
