Christopher's Battle with Epilepsy

I am writing for my son, Christopher Riggs Jr and his battle with Epilepsy.  He is 20 yrs old, will be a Junior at ECU University and his major is Music Education.  For the past year his seizures have tripled.  After four years of taking his meds they are no longer effective. They also have a serious effect with his studying and makes school twice as hard.  He currently can not drive as you have to be seizure free for 1 year in North Carolina. There is a surgery that he can have called a Vagus Nerve Stimulator that will be implanted so that he can be seizure free and continue with his college.   It is his best shot at being successful in his goals and school as well as being able to live a normal life. Christopher is the most caring, humble and giving person that you would ever meet and by nature a gifted teacher. We need your help to make it happen.
