As the single parent of four boys, even the barest of necessities are often seen as a luxury. My son has epilepsy, and faces many challenges as a result. I have always wanted to take my kids to Disney, but my income, coupled with concerns my child's health, made it a far off dream. I am a member of the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation's online community, and saw that they were offering an opportunity to attend Epilepsy Awareness Day in Disneyland. I contacted the foundation, shared with them my son's story, and my desire for him to meet others like him who understand his condition, and perhaps make a friend. To my utter disbelief, they awarded my family with the opportunity to participate in E Awareness day in Disneyland! They are REAL people, helping REAL people. I am so thankful for their dedication to the E community. They are an inspiration

What an absolute amazing foundation! With the Sami cam we received we are blessed! This foundation served as many things including supplying life saving devices/resources. Helping families in many ways to learn more about epilepsy and even help with sending them to a once in a life time (for some) trip to epilepsy days at Disney! I can't say thank you ENOUGH.

I only found out about CHF a short time ago... But can already tell that it's an AMAZING resource of information and help! We have adopted a little girl with a severe seizure disorder (hundreds of petites a day along with multiple grand mals a day), cerebral palsy, autism, fetal alcohol syndrome and ADHD. Our greatest concerns are here seizures. I have not been able to find a good resource of information and support until stumbling across The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation. I have learned so much! And finally glad to feel like I'm NOT ALONE! Most of her GM's happen while she is asleep... So I have found out about special devices to look into that can help put me at ease. Thank You for EVERYTHING You Do for Every Child & Parent that you have touched!!!

I can't thank The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation enough for their help with getting a SAMI Alert system for my son. Now I have peace of mind tucking my son into bed each night knowing I can keep a very close watch on him and catch seizures that otherwise would have gone missed. Julie is such an inspiration to myself and so many others for all that she has done to help others and spread SUDEP awareness.........thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do!!

I have been honored and proud to be a part of The Chelsea Hutchinson Foundation for the 4th year. Telling the story of Chelsea and my daughter's father who also lost his life to SUDEP has been well received and resonates with more people that one may think. For the 3rd year in a row, I have been honored to make a quilt with proceeds, time and materials being donated by various, generous groups and individuals so the quilt can be auctioned or raffled to raise money for such a wonderful cause. It is truly a labor of love to be a part of it all.

Thank you Julie for all your hard work!

We have registered to win Disney trips for the last two years, but haven't won. That's ok though. I am so glad that it led me to the Chelsea Hutchison Foundation and all of their wonderful resources. There is a ton of information thrown at parents of epileptic children and it's often tough to sort through. These guys have made the journey a little easier. Thanks for that!
