To Friends and Supporters,
This issue will be the end of our monthly newsletters.
We are grateful for the positive response we have received from all of you. We will not stop communicating, we are just changing things to other venues which may be more fruitful for the foundation.
To honor our daughter's life and legacy, we chose to start speaking in public about epilepsy in a way that would have a lasting affect.
We set up a website, started a newsletter, got involved with Facebook and Twitter and were guest speakers at the University.
We had three goals: To establish an endowed chair for research in epilepsy at UCLA; to develop a comprehensive epilepsy treatment Center, and to enhance empathy and educate the public about this terrible disease.
The funding for the Chair ($2,000,000) is nearing the half way point and we now have to concentrate our efforts in raising the second million. By the way a scientist now has been appointed to the chair and the research has begun.
The treatment center proposal has been written and presented to several medical agencies. It is a quantum leap for some, and while the proposal has not been flatly rejected, when the money is available it will be accepted. It is available if you would like to see it. Just send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have been quite active in the public arena. Two books have been written and published. We have attended and spoken at numerous conventions and conferences, and have generated interest in some major backers. We hope to see Nina's dream of a better life for those who are suffering the way she did.
