He is gone too soon and just should be here. Its been 5 long years without him. We walk to raise awareness and to hopefully find a cure for SUDEP. In hopes that no other family loses a loved one. 💜
- We MISS you so much Nick!
Walking for our warrior Weston
It’s been exactly one year since our family’s life changed. What started with one seizure has turned into thousands. What started with one ambulance ride has multiplied into many, along with countless ER visits, hospital stays, and surgeries. Our son Weston had his first seizure at the beach with his family on September 18, 2022. Prior to that date he was a healthy, silly, loving 3-year-old. Everyday is a challenge, but Weston exemplifies bravery and courage and never complains despite severe injuries. He faces the worst days with a big smile. He contends with the scariest moments by laughing. We took walking for granted. Weston can no longer do something as simple as walking independently for fear of injury from seizure. We are all walking on his behalf to help find a cure to give our children their carefree lives back.
