    This is a really nice connection to see.  My son Ian had epilepsy.  He passed away June 6, 2017 after a severe seizure and cardiac arrest.

    Thankful to anyone who supports CURE.  As a fan, this is something that feels good to see.
    His eminence has yet to show.

    My father has epilepsy. It's been very unfortunate watching him get older and regress mentally. All because he was jumping on a bed and fell off when he was 8. 

    I'm thrilled to see Ed spreading his resources to cover yet another charitable cause.

    Miguel Cervantes is an excellent Hamilton. His Daughter has epilepsy and has been very involved in epilepsy charities since coming here summer of 16. Great cause, great entertainment.
