My Son
Andrew was diagnosed with epilepsy in his late high school years. Not one to give up he persevered in living his best life. He met the love of his life, found a job he loved and worked on trying to achieve his life's goals. Sadly at the age of 23, a newlywed and proud parent to his favorite 4 legged companion Holly, Andrew was taken from us by a seizure. It is his family's goal to encourage everyone to live your best life and never ever let epilepsy stop you from trying. Through love, support and determination... Anything is ACHIEVABLE! - Donna

We walk for our hero, Dominic.
Our son has battled terrible seizures since he was 3 years old. Dominic has been through more in 6 years then many adults have in their lifetime. Regardless what he goes through, he always has a smile and “thumbs up”. His positive attitude helps push us to keep fighting for him. We share his story and walk each year to spread epilepsy awareness and to show him he’s not alone. 💜 We love you Bubba! - Jackie

I’m Walking For Myself
I had my first seizure at 16 years old and my life was changed forever. I had no idea I was about to embark on a journey of seizures, surgeries, endless medications and learning to navigate this new life. At 41, I look back and realize that I not only adapted, but thrived. With incredible support from family and friends, a positive attitude and amazing doctors, I can say life is good. I’m walking for me and others with epilepsy. - Scott
We are Walking For Nick
We are walking for our 19yr old son Nick who passed away suddenly in his sleep April 14, 2018 due to SUDEP (sudden unexplained death in epilepsy). We never knew about this devastating fatal complication and want more families to be aware and not have to go through what we have and continue to do. We miss him so much! He just should be here! We are incomplete. 💜 love you Nick!! - Tammy

I am walking for my beautiful daughter Carly. Carly was diagnosed with Sturge-Weber when she had her first set of seizures at 5 mths old. Carly has overcome so many set backs, but she is loving life! We are very thankful for ESWO's support over the years! - Lisa
Amelia’s Walking Warriors walk for her and all others affected by Epilepsy.
Amelia had two years of not knowing what was going on with her and her health before she had a major Clonic-Tonic Seizure while on a leisurely ride with her sister to the beach. Even with that and many many trying tests later, it took doctors those two years to diagnose her with Epilepsy finally. She has endured so much in such a little amount of time but always preserves, she is one strong girl. We have had some trying years with this as she moved from being a child (under 18) to being transferred to the Adult Epilepsy Unit among COVID no less. She has tried ever possible medication we believe but she is going on 9 month seizure free and is working on getting her drivers license back. She completed her two year College program and is working full time in her chosen field and will be getting married in 2023. All of her family – mom, dad, step dad, fiancé, sister, brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends support her 100% and we look forward to another year of the run and hope that these funds Raised help others with Epilepsy. - Tracy
