Hello all! I am posting this fundraiser for the Chelsea's Wish Trips to Epilepsy Awareness day at Disneyland in November. As many of you know, my daughter, Havilah, suffers from epilepsy (she can more than 100 seizures a day). My wife and I have been wanting to attend this conference (the largest epilepsy conference in the world!) for the last few years, and this is a great opportunity for our family.
For each $100 that we fundraise, we receive one entry to win an all-expenses paid trip for our entire family to attend the full two-day epilepsy conference and Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland. As I'm sure you all know, I love any opportunity to travel to a Disney park, but even more than that I want my family (Havilah included) to get the chance to go and meet other families like ours and to learn more about epilepsy. This conference would allow us to learn about new equipment that could improve her quality of life and hear all about the latest research, among many other things.
Not many people are expected to enter this giveaway, and the foundation is awarding this trip to 10 families. I think we have a good chance of winning. Even if we do not win, this is a great opportunity to help a wonderful group that raises awareness on epilepsy and takes care of so many families (financially and otherwise). The trip is in November, but they pick the winners in July.
