On October 3, 2018 we were able to live up to our mission statement … through our network of family and friends we were able to help a young boy and his family raise enough funds to get a service dog for Kyle who suffers from seizures. Truly an amazing and unbelievable organization who trains these dogs to do the things they do. So heart warming to be a part of this and looking forward to meeting Kyle’s dog!!! Thank you to all of you have supported us and continue to support us as we continue to make a difference!!!

The money raised from the National Walk for Epilepsy helps the Foundation provide services for people living with epilepsy, provide awareness programs for proper seizure recognition and first aid, provide a voice to make sure health care options for people living with seizures remain strong, and provide much needed research funding toward better treatment options and ultimately cures.

A huge shout out to Saint Peter School in Antioch. These kids chose thE WERTHy Foundation as the recipient for their “Coins for a Cause Day”. On this day the students can be out of uniform and wear jeans and tennis shoes. Every student brings a dollar or more to donate to the cause. The students made posters to hang throughout the school. We are so proud of these kids for doing their part to raise Epilepsy awareness!!
