We're so excited to again be participating in the Denver Strides for Epilepsy 5K! What a fun, celebratory, empowering event this is for the epilepsy community and for our family.
We're raising money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado in honor of our beautiful son, Brooks. Brooks was diagnosed with epilepsy at 5 months old, and the diagnosis has certainly changed all our lives. Brooks is now 2.5 years old, and it's amazing how far we've all come on this journey over the past 2 years. Especially him! Brooks still experiences seizures...and while we will continue to work hard to get to ZERO seizures ...we are also in a beautiful place of acceptance and celebration of all aspects of Brooks, including his epilepsy. This boy amazes us every day with his perseverance and his sweet disposition! He is such a gift to us. Despite all the daily challenges, Brooks has brought such enlightenment and growth to all of us who love and care for him. We thank the universe for our perfect little boy every single day.
We are passionate about supporting the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado, and hope you'll support us in supporting them!
