Review for Sofies Journey Inc/Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland, Irvine, CA, USA
Sofies Journey organizes an epilepsy educational expo that is the largest in the country. For two full days thousands of patients and caregivers are given access to resources and education from all over the country. They move from booth to booth learning of new ways to fight their epilepsy. Guests at the expo meet neurologists, hospitals, pharma, nutritionists, device manufacturers, non profits, seizure response dogs, and researchers all in one room.
The event then takes a day to celebrate the children (young and old) who are living with epilepsy at the happiest place on earth- Disneyland! When the families take over Main Street USA, each child is reminded that they are not alone. It is quite an experience! that will give you goosebumps. It is a day away from dr appts and therapies - a day to just be a kid.
