Review for Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a Board Member of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago I am very involved in the development of our supporters through various activities such as our 5k Runs and annual Golf Outing, which benefit Camp Blackhawk; the summer camp where children with epilepsy can just be camping "kids" without the stress of something happening relevant to their particular condition. I find personal satisfaction in the fact that I can help families that are unfortunately not able to fund a summer experience for their child; and that we can somehow fill that void. Every child deserves to be a "kid", and hopefully we make that happen for a week each summer. I've been involved for over 5 years, ever since my friend, Kurt Florian shared his story with me; I too have a family member with Epilepsy, and understand the battle people may be confronted with.
