Evan's Epilepsy Event started because of this handsome boy right here!
Evan was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was three years old. He was having multiple complex partial seizures a day until we were able to find a medication that controlled them for a year and a half. We thought there was a possibility he may be growing out of them until they started again with a vengeance. A second MRI showed cortical dysplasia in his left frontal lobe. This is a small section of the brain that didn't completely form while he was in utero and the neurons were constantly misfiring and causing complete havoc. We went through multiple medications, sometimes three at a time fluctuating doses, and nothing seemed to work. At this point, Evan was having 20-30 seizures a day. It was recommended that we see an epileptologist. With cortical dysplasia being very hard to control on medicine and often times making life very difficult for the one being affected and their families, she suggested a resection. At seven years old, on March 27, 2017, Evan had brain surgery.
He has been seizure free ever since.
We started this family friendly, fun-filled event to create awareness for epilepsy and raise money while enjoying NoDa's craft beer and playing cornhole!
It's our hope that one day the stigma of epilepsy can be erased so Evan and all others can live as normal a life as possible and never let epilepsy define them.
All proceeds raised help local families with medication they can't otherwise afford, assist with travel costs during doctors visits, surgery stays and second opinions. We also contribute some of our proceeds to costs for ongoing research.
In the past two years we have raised nearly $25,000! Our goal this year is $15,000 and we can't do it without you!
