My son was diagnosed at 6months with Dravet. II went online and found the foundations website! As a rare syndrome while my son was having a prolonged seizure I was just reading which medications not to administer from the Dsf website. I was desperate and Lori., the president called me back after I sent her an email, she gave me hope with her words and the warning of this horrible syndrome! the foundation has been like a family through their support group. They share my hopes, laughter and cries! The staff is working hard on research and just pray one day there is a cute for this. DSF has just granted my son with a cooling vest and an IPad we use during his therapy. I am extremely grateful to the foundation and staff for working hard on research and although they face the same problems all dravet parents do, they make theirselves available to lend a crying shoulder and give support! I will always be thankful to DSF for all the work they do and trying so hard on finding a cure,
