My son, Chris, has epilepsy and this foundation was one of the first to reach out to him. They shared his story, so that others would learn what it was like for a child to live with epilepsy. They also gave him a community of support - they made sure he understood that he was never alone in this journey and fight against epilepsy. They have supplied him with the latest epilepsy equipment - which is a very cool looking watch to the unknowing eye. They support my son and that means a lot to me as a Mom. THANK GOD for this foundation!
I am very thankful to KAREFoundation for helping my daughter and I. I am a widowed mom of three daughters...two with various neurological difficulties. My youngest daughter was just diagnosed with complex partial epilepsy this past April. My daughters and I survive on the SS survivor benefits they receive from their father's death three years ago September 2. I have set up a very strict budget so as to assure that all bills are paid. With the bills and various medical appts one to two hours from home one or more times a month typically, we have very little funds to work with. For this reason, I have been unable to get a medical ID necklace for my daughter for her epilepsy and asthma. I posted a wish on Hero Network and KAREFoundation stepped up and donated the entire amount I needed to order it. I was able to order the necklace this morning and it should arrive in a couple of weeks. If not for KAREFoundation, I would not have been able to get it. I am very grateful for my help and offer my rave reviews in thanks. Thanks again KAREFoundation. You helped bring great relief into this worried mom's life :)
