CARPe Diem – Seize the Day Celebration raises over $50,000
A special Day allows a long message!
10 years ago on this Day - I received a miracle! Dr. David Steven and the team at the London Health Sciences Centre saved my life by performing brain surgery to stop my uncontrolled epilepsy.
I have many people who have touched my life and made my battle with epilepsy a success, only with them am I here today celebrating! Family, Friends, Medical Professionals, Business connections, colleagues, others with epilepsy are just a few of those who have given me the reason to win the battle and take each day as a new day!
Today, I must specially thank Dr. Steven, the entire team at LHSC, Mom, Dad, Aunt Marguerite and Larry Fisher for changing my life - all of you were there that day - the day that will never go unnoticed! I cannot leave out Tracy Sundue - Tracy you may not have been there but you came along shortly after and made me realize I had a reason to advocate and help find new hope for others with Epilepsy.
It is an honour today on my 10 years seizure free to announce that our fundraising event on Saturday - Carpe Diem - Seize The Day Celebration raised over $25,215. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine we would have such a success! Thank you to all the sponsors, auction donors, attendees, committee members, volunteers and supporters who made this possible. With Domino's Pizza of Canada matching up to $25,000 this is sure to change the lives of others living with epilepsy.
To make a memory of 10 years we are excited to be presenting Western University - Epilepsy Advancement and Research with a total of over $32,000 from our 2018 fundraising - this includes our annual Seize the Day Crop that raised $5,023 in March, along with the annual candy/baking at Almonte General Hospital which raised $1,796. Then we add the matching of up to $25,000 from Domino's and Western University will receive over $57,000!
How better to celebrate 10 years seizure free! THANK YOU to each and everyone who has and is part of my life! Today truly marks a new beginning!
