Coming Events - Save November 10, 2013
A terrific band, SLEDD, has taken on the cause of epilepsy and is devoting its part of a concert to help bring awareness and empathy to the victims of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a  Neurological Disorder, along with Stroke, Parkinson's Disease and Autism and many others. SLEDD is a successful hard hitting Heavy Alternative musical group primarily oriented to albums. They will be presenting a brand new song, "Nina", written especially for our daughter.  The November newsletter will provide the poem that my wife wrote about our daughter on which the words of the song are based. SLEDD on FACEBOOK.

The concert will start at 7:00pm  at the Ramona MainStage, 626 Main Street, Ramona, CA.  Doors open at 6:00pm.  Click on Ramona Main Stage for Tickets and Directions.

Future Issues will have personal stories about the battle with epilepsy
In the past few months we have received touching stories from individuals who have epilepsy, their friends and their parents.  All of them are worthy of sharing, but we have selected a few that we will share in the months ahead.  If you have a story of courage, or dispair, or of the events surrounding the life of an indivudal with epilepsy, please forward it to us.  You can e-mail directly through our website under the "Contact us" section or by letter. The "Contact us" mail comes directly to our computer.  We will respect your privacy and only share what you want us to share, we would certainly change the names. We know, we lived with the need for privacy to protect our daughter for 50 years.
