Help Emily Fight Epilepsy!

Emily Grace is a sweet, loving 18 year old girl who has been fighting epilepsy since the age of one. Within the year and a half following that very scary first episode, her seizures became increasingly worse which led to her being, in what the doctor's called, an absence stupor. She was having 250+ absence seizures daily and 3- 4 grandmal seizures a week. 
We traveled to different hospitals throughout the southeast looking for a treatment option that would work for Emily Grace. After being on special diets, neurosurgery, and taking so many different medications they're difficult to count, we were finally told that Emily Grace's epilepsy was medically intractable.
Throughout this journey, Emily Grace has remained strong,  positive, and has never given up. She is a remarkable young lady with a BIG heart! After being granted the wish of an art studio from the Make A Wish foundation, Emily Grace has raised over $7000 to have other childrens wishes granted!
GOOD NEWS!!! We have recently been given new hope as Emily Grace has been accepted into a clinical trial in NY!  This new treatment is proving to be effective for children with intractable epilepsy. This requires her and a parent to fly to NY 1-2 times per month for 12-18 months. 
We would greatly appreciate your support with travel expenses! Thank you for your consideration! God bless you all!
