    Philanthropists
    I support a variety of charitable organizations through the world. My passion is research that would one day find a cure for epilepsy. I am also an advocate for helping children/ adults with life skills once diagnosed with epilepsy. I am currently working on a review of effective techniques for working with students with epilepsy and a parent devotional guide for support.
