Epilepsy Services Foundation, Inc.
July 22, 2013

My husband and I have legal custody of our 14-year old niece who has epilepsy. When her seizures started to increase, I called Epilepsy Services Foundation for advice. The executive director, Tom Orth, was such a help to us. He put us in touch with a wonderful support group for parents and kids in Sarasota (JoshProvides.org) and also told us about the support group in Tampa. Tom gave us the names of pediatric neurologists in the area who could help us. We went on an epilepsy walk with Tom last fall and met more people with epilepsy and their parents. Our niece got to participate in a USF baseball game as a "bat girl" because of ESF. She loved it! Most recently, our niece attended Camp Boggy Creek, and her fee was paid for by ESF. She had a week with other kids who have epilepsy, and it was the best week in her life. Our lives have been so enriched by all of the positive changes we've been able to make since we contacted ESF. Thank you thank you!
